Russia: Putin hails Heroes of Labour

Russian President Vladimir Putin awarded five highly coveted gold medals to five workers, selected as 'Heroes of Labour' at a state ceremony in Moscow's Kremlin on Thursday.

The gold medals engraved with Soviet stars were awarded to Ivan Aidullin, a well workover master at Surgutneftegas; Alisa Aksenova, president of the State Vladimir-Suzdal History, Architecture and Art Museum; Mikhail Gotovtsev, head of the Udyor farm; Yury Lepekhin, a teacher from Volgograd school No. 78; and Tatyana Pokrovskaya, head coach of the Russian national synchronised swimming team.

The Soviet Union started awarding the official honorary title of a "Hero of Socialist Labour" in 1938.
