I've always tried to remain as neutral as possible in my descriptions and/or opinions on current Russian awards, but I must admit this one completely caught me off guard!  It's very nature seems like a throw back to the Soviet Era.  or is it just me?

If you hold a torch of knowledge, let others light their candles from it...

Oh, I beg you, why be surprised...

Russia is a republic with a monarchical coat of arms, a secular state with official religious holidays, equality of all faiths and state awards named after Orthodox saints.
