During WWII the Kremlin was disguised as living houses so it was not destroyed by bombardment.  Golden domes of the churches were painted grey,  the green roofs of the towers - brown. The walls were decorated with false facades. Wooden construction were erected inside. 

On the second photo you can see the disguised Mausoleum, I remember that in childhood I was told this story by WWII veteran and was so amazed that couldn’t believe in it.

Weaver Hawkins. Morning underground, 1922.
Harold Frederick Weaver Hawkins (1893-1977) was an English painter who specialized in “ambitious, sometimes mural-sized, modernist allegories of morality for an age of atomic warfare and global over-population.”
He enlisted in the Queen’s Westminster Rifles and was seriously wounded in the Battle of the Somme at Gommecourt, France in 1916. As a result of his injuries his right hand and arm were rendered useless but were saved from amputation after countless operations. Weaver’s father had declared to the operating surgeon “My son is an artist. He would rather die than live without arms”. Weaver had to teach himself to draw and paint using his left arm, which was never at full strength.
