Soviet Order of the Red Banner #94426


Леонид Никитович Сташук


Awarded to Major Leonid Nikitovich Stashuk (Леонид Никитович Сташук)


For inflicted great losses upon the enemy in the in the Dukhovshchina, Smolensk, and Vytebsk regions. He personally lead a detachment of submachine-gunners and eliminated up to 13 Fascists, destroyed 2 tanks and 1 SPG, 5 trucks and 1 vehicle



Made of solid silver and enamels. Measures 45.44 mm in height, 37.30 mm in width and it weighs 22.3 gram without its suspension (and screwplate). The serial number and mint mark are located at the 6 o’clock position of its reverse.


This  Order of the Red Banner is in excellent condition considering it is an early suspension type award. The details are still visible and crisp and even the higher laying wreath in the center shows light wear only. The enamels are without repairs and and mostly present apart from some damage on the 3 o’clock ray center red star. Its connection ring has not been cut and the double layer steel suspension is time period to the award. The awardee had a screw soldered to its reverse for more stable wear. This can be removed professionally on request but we prefer the orders to be in the state the awardee left them in.


Brief, concrete description of his feat of arms or achievements:

“Comrade STASHUK served on the front of struggle against the German invaders where he proved himself as a courageous, decisive, and capable officer.

During the tough defensive battle near the hill “Zelenaya” (Slobodsky district, Smolensk region), comrade STASHUK personally managed to organise the troops and arrange for impenetrable defence.

Comrade STASHUK was present in the combat formations at the tough moment of the engagements and commanded the attacking units near the village Zhukovo (Dukhovshchina district, Smolensk region) during 23-28 August 1943. During the combat period since 23.08.1943 in the Dukhovshchina, Smolensk, and Vytebsk sectors, the regiment inflicted the following losses upon the enemy: up to 1400 killed and wounded Fascists, over 70 settlements were liberated from the German yoke. On top of that, the following enemy materiel was destroyed: 8 tanks, 1 APC, 5 vehicles, 11 cannons, 8 mortars, 4 machine-guns. Materiel captured: 23 submachine-guns, 11 machine-guns, 2 ammunition depots, 1 radio station, 3 bicycles. Comrade STASHUK has played a great part in this success.

Temporary exercising the command over the 22 Guards Lenin order rifle regiment, comrade STASHUK proved again his skill in managing the troops in combat. F.ex. in the action near the village Barsuki (Smolensk region), he personally lead a detachment of submachine-gunners and eliminated up to 13 Fascists, destroyed 2 tanks and 1 SPG, destroyed 5 trucks and 1 vehicle. Materiel captured: 1 canon, 1 truck, and 2 German prisoners.

For personnel courage and bravery, for masterful command in combat, I recommend comrade STASHUK for a state award – order “RED STAR””
