Workers walk in front of a huge temporary dome covering the mausoleum of Soviet state founder Vladimir Lenin on Red Square, in Moscow, on February 5, 2013. The dome keeps temperatures inside warmer and allows repair works on the mausoleum to continue even during winter to finish them by the end-of-April deadline. AFP PHOTO / ALEXANDER NEMENOV
