According to the Russian president, the code revolved around key concepts such as brotherhood, equality and happiness.
However, Putin also conceded that these ideas were not implemented fully in the USSR and later admitted the Soviet Union began with repressions—something the Communists accused the tsar of.
Once again taking on Lenin, Putin said the founder of the Soviet Union was wrong in opposing his successor Joseph Stalin over the issue of how autonomous regions in the USSR should be.
Almost reiterating last week's comments, Putin said Lenin laid "a landmine" underneath Russia when he opposed Stalin's idea that separate republics should only have a "broad autonomy" and insisted instead that they should have the right to opt-out of the union whenever they want to.

Doesn't say. But they say they don't like Trump because he's a flake when it comes to policy.
Evanina said the U.S. intelligence community has found that China does not want Trump to win reelection because it views him as "unpredictable," pointing to Beijing's criticisms of his statements and actions toward Hong Kong, video app TikTok, 5G cellular networks and the legal battle over the South China Sea
Here's a surprise. Russia doesn't like Biden. Trump is still Putin's buddy.
The official said this is in line with how Russia felt toward Biden during his time in the Obama administration, in particular his role in advancing "policies on Ukraine and its support for the anti-Putin opposition inside Russia."
"Some Kremlin-linked actors are also seeking to boost President Trump’s candidacy on social media and Russian television," Evanina warned.
Filings at the Justice Department show John Weaver, co-founder of the organization, registered as a Russian foreign agent last year on behalf of uranium conglomerate TENEX, the New York Post reported on Tuesday. TENEX is owned by the Russian state company Rosatom, which also owns Uranium One, the company that paid former President Bill Clinton $500,000 in speaking fees and millions to the Clinton Foundation.
WASHINGTON — The founders of the Lincoln Project, a headline-grabbing anti-Trump political action committee formed by GOP operatives who describe the president as a “crook” and “huckster,” have their own checkered dealings with Russia and the tax man, documents obtained by The Post reveal.
Since its inception last November — announced with a blistering New York Times op-ed — the brainchild of George Conway, Steve Schmidt, Rick Wilson and John Weaver has raked in more than $19.4 million, according to FEC filings, and has needled President Trump repeatedly with provocative TV ads.
But the group — which the National Review on Monday dubbed “The Grifter Project” and Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) last week dismissed as a “cabal of political consultants all in it for the money” — don’t exactly practice what they preach.
Co-founder Weaver, a political consultant known for his work on John McCain’s and John Kasich’s presidential campaigns, registered as a Russian foreign agent for uranium conglomerate TENEX in a six-figure deal last year, filings with the Department of Justice show.
Problem is Russia is too strong for us to flex too much military might.
I wouldn't. That would be a cruel and pointless exercise.
Now now Phage, you as well as others know I would be all for bombing the Russians back into the stone age if it were possible.
Yes. I know. I'm what's known as a baby boomer. I'm quite familiar with the MAD doctrine.
Too many for us to shoot down and/or reliably take out with our own nukes.
Now is the right time to attack them, total war, and snuff out the red communist dragon once and for all
