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.
Yeah. I think there is reason to critizise the soviet program in the fifties, they did not dominate nearly as much as during later decades and there's also reason to question the whole european game back then i believe.
