This appears to be a colorized photo.  The medal bar is straight forward enough and they got the ribbon color correct too.

from L-R;

1) Order of St. Anne w/o swords 3rd class

2) Order of St. Stanislaus w/o swords 3rd class

3) Commemorative for 300 years of Romanov dynasty

 

The badges and pins will take a little more examination, maybe a close up too.

 

The badge on his right pocket;

After examining it closer, I think it might be for the Technical Institute of Peter the Great. 

 

The color should be bronze gilt, however I don't know if it also came in silver.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
