This guy has a lot of gold on his chest. Not only is he a three-times HSL, he also won a Lenin Prize, two Stalin Prizes, a State Prize, and 10 (!) Orders of Lenin. He was also awarded an Order of the October Revolution, two Orders of the Red Banner of Labor, a 1985 OPW1, and several medals and foreign awards.

His name is Yefim Pavlovich Slavsky (Ефим Павлович Славский) (7 Nov 1898 - 28 Nov 1991). He was Minister of Medium Machine Building (среднего машиностроения, I don't know how to translate this nicely) between 1957-1963 and 1965-1986 .

It seems that 10 Lenins wasn't the record... This guy has 12 Lenins, two HSLs, and an Order of the Red Banner of Labor!

Nikolai Semyonovich Patolichev Никола́й Семёнович Патоличев (23 Sep 1908 - 1 Dec 1989) was the 12th First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Belorussian Communist Party (1950 - 1956) and later the 5th Minister of Foreign Trade (внешней торговли) (1958 - 1985).
