The intention of the Venezuelan government "to embalm the body of Chavez forever, so that the people could see it at the Museum of the Revolution" have been announced recently by the vice-president Nicolas Maduro.


The Russian experts was first to embalm the body of Lenin after his death in 1924. Later these technologies were used in the embalmment of the body of Joseph Stalin who died on March 5, like Chavez, but 60 years earlier in the USSR. The embalming and maintaining of the body in the USSR and Russia engages a special laboratory that is now called the Research and Training Center of Biomedical Technologies.
