Removed list of politicians[edit]

The following list is removed from the article.

Below is a list of relevant figures of the Kremlin throughout Soviet years:

We are not going to list all persons that sat in the Kremlin, are we? We already have list of Russian leaders, list or Russians(section "Politicians"), etc. Not to say that commentaries to the list could be better Mikkalai 21:30, 12 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Kremlin vs Moscow Kremlin[edit]

That's a lot of links to fix! It would have been better to leave the Moscow one here, and move the others to a Kremlin (disambiguation). To English speakers, "Kremlin" means the Moscow one unqualified; this particular split, despite its good points, is going to be a pain forever. Stan 05:04, 17 Nov 2004 (UTC)

I moved Moscow Kremlin to Moscow Kremlin and I also made the Kremlin redirect there. I think I disambiguated all the links to Kremlin that had to be disambiguated. From now on, Kremlin should be about kremlins in general (plus a list of all Russian kremlins), just like Castle is about castles in general. --Kpalion 12:42, 25 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Should not the beautiful Pskov Krom be included in the list? 142.103.92.191

The Kremlin at Red Square, Russia.[edit]

The image of the "The Kremlin at Red Square, Russia." is in fact the Saint Basil's Cathedral and I quote:

"Saint Basil's Cathedral should not be confused with the Moscow Kremlin, which is situated right next to it on Red Square. It is not at all a part of the Moscow Kremlin. However, many publications do make the mistake of calling this structure the Kremlin. The misconception has inadvertently been reinforced by Western television journalists, who have often stood in front of St. Basil's during their reports."

Changed it to KREML.jpg, which is a picture of the Moscow Kremlin. 83.253.250.49 (talk) 22:28, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Kremlin not from Flint.[edit]

Kremlin (Kreml') all built of wood. Stone fence erected much later. Іn Moscow, Vladimir, Yaroslavl, Kostroma, Nyzhnonovhorod and others provinces had not stone (swampy areas!!). In many areas, stone (flint) no, for swamp (swampy areas). Kremlin - "enclosed garden, garden fortified palisade." (moreover, palisade і garden ("Ukrainian: sad") cognate words). Word - Semitic origin (see Carmel). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 178.95.48.169 (talk) 20:41, 16 September 2012 (UTC) Pskov Krom not Pskov Kreml'. Krom - derived from the Proto-Slavic "Kremiti" (crash, crumble) with whom relevant for Ukrainian "Ukrainian: krim"(separate; Czech "Krema", Slovak "Krem"), "Ukrainian: kroma"; "Ukrainian: kremsati" (crumble), "Ukrainian: krihkiy" (fragile) "Ukrainian: kremen" -> flint(kremen) brittle and crumble. Wood did not crumble.

In fortified palisade gardens were reduced mansions, palaces (cf. Bakhchisarai - "Garden Palace") wealthy people, and the word was used to denote the Kremlin not only part of the reserve, "best trees", "best wood", "best scaffolding" "belles garden. "
