The Order of Victory (Russian: Орден “Победa”) was the highest military decoration awarded for World War II service in the Soviet Union, and one of the rarest orders in the world. The order was awarded only to Generals and Marshals for successfully conducting combat operations involving one or more army groups and resulting in a “successful operation within the framework of one or several fronts resulting in a radical change of the situation in favor of the Red Army.” In its history, it has been awarded twenty times to twelve Soviet leaders and five foreign leaders, with one revocation.
