Vladimir Putin signed Executive Order establishing the title Hero of Labour of the Russian Federation.
The President is establishing the title in order to raise the public recognition and prestige of selfless and conscientious labour. The Hero of Labour of the Russian Federation title will be awarded to Russian citizens whose work, whether in state, public or economic capacity, has particularly contributed to Russia’s welfare and prosperity.
Mr Putin approved the Regulation on the Title of Hero of Labour of the Russian Federation and the corresponding medal’s description and design.
The relevant amendments have been made to a number of earlier legislative acts.
