Sologubov earned Medal for Battle Merit durung WWII - he actually took part in combats and was wounded.

Order of the Red Banner of Labour is typical Soviet BS witht motivational purposes, in the end it was worth nothing. In Sologubov's case i think it's actually hockey award - i'm not sure, but i can imagine, he got as add on to olympic gold - basically reward from communistic party for olympic victory.
