That is an honorific-- they were given the name "Brest" after fighting around the old fortress city of Brest-Litovsk. A regiment could have a title like (making one up) 899th Rifles 'Order of Lenin Order of the Red Star Warsaw Berlin in the name of Vasily Kurapatkin' Regiment--which must have made answering the telephone fun.

He was a member of the Communist party since 1945. In November 1947 when the Awards Record Card was signed, he was a collective farmer (kolkhoznik) at the "Probutdenie" Kolkhoz in the village of Sh.-Maidan.
