The head of Chechnya, in turn, awarded the chief doctor of the hospital, Yunus Umarov, with the Order of Akhmat Kadyrov.
In August last year, Kadyrov received an award from the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company Grozny for creating “quality content.” The prize was $800. Kadyrov was awarded by the Minister of the Republic for National Policy, Foreign Relations, Press and Information Akhmed Dudayev.
According to the TV channel, Kadyrov often shot videos in "extreme conditions" and "hard-to-reach places", and often personally commented on what was happening in the frame. “In particular, the head of the region introduced subscribers to his own parrot,” Grozny TV channel noted.

In the Chechen segment of the social network Instagram began to enthusiastically congratulate the head of Chechnya. Chairman of Parliament Magomed Daudov, member of the State Duma Adam Delimkhanov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Chechen government Vakhita Usmayeva - all of them were clearly captivated by the wording "the highest award of public recognition."

How Shoigu surpassed Stalin, and what medals from Putin give
Sergei Shoigu became the undisputed champion in establishing departmental awards among all Soviet and Russian leaders, reports Open Media. Under him, 78 new medals and insignia appeared - 25 while he was in charge of the Ministry of Emergency Situations and 53 - when he served as Minister of Defense. In 2014 alone, Shoigu established 15 new medals of the Ministry of Defense - more than under Stalin, in the victorious 1945, when 10 new state medals appeared in the USSR. Then all the medals were combat: "For the victory over Germany", "For the liberation of Prague", "For the capture of Berlin". Under Shoigu, in the year of the “Crimean Spring”, in addition to the expected award “For the Return of Crimea”, the Ministry of Defense establishes the medal “Artist of the Greeks” for merits in the creation of patriotic works, “For merits in logistics” and even for the “World Tank Biathlon Championship” - 2014". Medals of the Ministry of Defense are received by members of musical ensembles and circus artists. Shoigu himself wears 14 awards on his tunic.
In subsequent years, the Ministry of Defense under Shoigu received awards for all occasions: “For contribution to congress and exhibition activities”, “For achievements in military-political work”, “For contribution to the development of the International Army Games”, “For distinction in financial provision" and others.
The main problem of the Russian award system, according to experts, is that orders have been reduced to the level of birthday gifts: they are awarded not for specific merits, but for anniversaries. This is clearly seen in the examples of Valentina Matvienko, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov or artist Lev Leshchenko.
The reward system itself raises questions. For example, participants in the power show Russian Bogatyrs and the dance group SabotageTeam, artists of the Great Moscow Circus, the winner of the People's Artist competition Alexei Goman, State Duma deputies Iosif Kobzon and Valentina Tereshkova received medals for "Participant in the military operation in Syria". Kobzon, answering a question from journalists about the award, said that “our participation is spiritual participation. Spiritual support is perhaps even more important than shots.”
Orders were received by almost all the children of Putin's elite. The sons of the ex-head of the FSO Yevgeny Murov and businessman Yuri Kovalchuk have three orders each, two - the son of politician Vladimir Zhirinovsky, one each - the children of Nikolai Patrushev and Gennady Timchenko, the sons of Mintimer Shaimiev and Boris Rotenberg. Surprisingly, the son of Igor Sechin has only one medal.
The head of the department of information and mass communications, Igor Konashenkov, has seven highest awards, and General Nikolai Vatutin, who died in 1944, a participant in the defense of Stalingrad, the Battle of Kursk, the Battle for the Dnieper, the commander of the 1st Ukrainian Front, has six, of which two were issued posthumously , already under Brezhnev.
Awards are received not only by people from Putin's inner circle, but also by their relatives. For example, billionaire Gennady Timchenko, whom Minchenko Consulting calls a member of Politburo 2.0, has no Russian state awards at all (according to official documents, of course). But his wife was awarded the Order of Friendship for active charitable work. The wife of Sergei Chemezov, Ekaterina Ignatova, has a medal of the Order of Merit for the Fatherland, II degree, for her contribution to the development of the Unified Modular Platform project (Aurus limousines), the sister of the Minister of Defense and a deputy of the State Duma, Larisa Shoigu, was awarded the Order of Friendship for her contribution to the development of the Russian parliamentarism. Viktor Patrushev, brother of Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev, received the Order of Honor and Friendship for his labor achievements. The sons of Nikolai Patrushev were also awarded orders. Dmitry Patrushev, Minister of Agriculture - with the Order of Honor for his work as Chairman of the Board of the Russian Agricultural Bank; Andrey Patrushev - at that time an adviser to the chairman of the board of directors of Rosneft Igor Sechin - the Order of Honor for labor achievements.
The titles of Hero of Russia and Hero of Labor give their holders many benefits, privileges and allowances. Among them are not only the exemption from rent or the allocation of 40 acres of land without competition, but also the perpetuation of memory by installing a bronze bust in the homeland. For example, in St. Petersburg someday there will be a monument to Arkady Rotenberg, who received the star of the Hero of Labor for the construction of the Crimean bridge.
7 years after the signing of the decree on the establishment of the title "Hero of Labor of the Russian Federation", Vladimir Putin presented state awards to the builders of the Crimean bridge. One of the recipients was the owner of the company that built the bridge, billionaire Arkady Rotenberg. From the hands of Putin, he received the gold medal "Hero of Labor of Russia". But that's not all - according to the decree, "in the event that a person is awarded the title of Hero of Labor of the Russian Federation in his homeland, on the basis of a decree of the President of the Russian Federation, a bronze bust with the appropriate inscription is installed." So in the future, a monument to the sparring partner of President Vladimir Putin in judo will appear in St. Petersburg.

Another “benefit” for those awarded with state and departmental orders and medals is the decision of the Supreme Court, which considers awards, along with the presence of minor children and elderly parents, as a measure to mitigate criminal punishment.
Putin himself has a myriad of different titles and awards - public, religious, Russian and foreign. He is an honorary professor at the St. Petersburg Humanitarian University of Trade Unions and an honorary doctor of the Russian Military Medical Academy.
