Images for Alexander Shelipov[edit]

Does anyone have any photos of Alexander Shelipov that can be uploaded to his Wikipedia page? Despite being a major figure in Soviet politics, there is a surprising lack of photos of him on Wikimedia Commons. Emiya1980 (talk) 22:28, 26 August 2017 (UTC)Emiya1980

Reputed Lenin quote[edit]

Greetings. Today's featured article reminded me of this quote, which this 67 year old has known of time out of mind. It's so convenient for nominal Christians that I suspect that it's made up, like Mark Twain's quote about the longest winter of his life was a 'summer in San Francisco.' The quote is notably absent from Wikiquote. If anyone knows anything about its veracity (or not) please leave a note on my Talk page.

"I made a mistake. Without doubt, an oppressed multitude had to be liberated. But our method only provoked further oppression and atrocious massacres. My living nightmare is to find myself lost in an ocean of red with the blood of innumerable victims. It is too late now to alter the past, but what was needed to save Russia were ten Francis of Assisi’s."

Disambiguation links on pages tagged by this wikiproject[edit]

Wikipedia has many thousands of wikilinks which point to disambiguation pages. It would be useful to readers if these links directed them to the specific pages of interest, rather than making them search through a list. Members of WikiProject Disambiguation have been working on this and the total number is now below 20,000 for the first time. Some of these links require specialist knowledge of the topics concerned and therefore it would be great if you could help in your area of expertise.

A list of the relevant links on pages which fall within the remit of this wikiproject can be found at http://69.142.160.183/~dispenser/cgi-bin/topic_points.py?banner=WikiProject_Soviet_Union

Please take a few minutes to help make these more useful to our readers.— Rod talk 18:47, 3 December 2017 (UTC)
