This section has mostly dealt with state and military awards, but many other levels of government issue their own awards in modern day Russia. Cities and oblasts (regions) also bestow a very wide range of awards. One of the awards bestowed by many Russian cities is the title of Honoured Citizen.

Contrary to similar western awards, this is much more than an "honorary title", it comes with a large range of monetary rewards, increase in pensions for retirees, tax deductions, increase in the quality of medical care and in lodging, increase in the quality of care in retirement homes, free city transportation (taxi, bus, metro etc). The title of "Honorary Citizen also exists and in Russian they are often spelled the same and one must look at the award prerequisites and affiliated rewards to fully differentiate the two.

The title of HONOURED CITIZEN is reserved for residents and usually includes at least some of the aforementioned prizes, the title of HONORARY CITIZEN is usually bestowed unto non residents and can also awarded to foreigners who have made a great impact on local life and is rarely if ever accompanied by any type of actual reward save the decoration and title.
