The Order of Lenin (Russian: Орден Ленина, Orden Lenina),
named after the leader of the Russian October Revolution,
was the highest decoration bestowed by the Soviet Union.
The order was awarded to:
- Civilians for outstanding services rendered to the State,
- Members of the armed forces for exemplary service,
- Those who promoted friendship and cooperation between peoples
and in strengthening peace
- Those with meritorious services to the Soviet state and society
From 1944 to 1957, before the institution of specific length of service medals,
the Order of Lenin was also used to reward 25 years of conspicuous military service.
It was also bestowed on cities, companies,
factories, regions, military units and ships. Corporate entities, factories,
various educational institutions and military units
who received the said Order applied the full
name of the order into their official titles.
The Order of the Red Banner (Russian: Орден Крaсного Знамени) was the first Soviet military decoration. The order was established on 16 September 1918, during the Russian Civil War by decree of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee. It was the highest award of Soviet Russia, subsequently the Soviet Union, until the Order of Lenin was established in 1930. Recipients were recognised for extraordinary heroism, dedication, and courage demonstrated on the battlefield. The order was awarded to individuals as well as to military units, cities, ships, political and social organizations, and state enterprises. In later years it was also awarded on the twentieth and again on the thirtieth anniversary of military service without requiring participation in combat.
