That's thing beneath it is the coats of arm of modern Russian Federation - a two-headed eagle, and the wings of an eagle now decorate Lenin's head.

"Melodia". You can read the contents on the pictures - it was both on English and Russian language because it was mainly for export - nobody in Russia was in need of cd's. Photos by Gyuri from Hungary.
