Question[edit]

Should people who win the "Lenin Peace Prize" be listed as having won the "Stalin Peace Prize"? This seems misleading to me. john k 23:59, 20 Jun 2004 (UTC)

Put a note in the article saying when (what year) the name changed (if you know when it did) →Raul654 17:56, Jun 21, 2004 (UTC)

It's actually the same prize. When the name was changed the Soviet government wrote all the previous recipients and asked them to send in their Stalin Prizes so they could be replaced with Lenin Prizes. AndyL 23:36, 11 Nov 2004 (UTC)

It's not the same prize! In the Great Soviet Encyclopedia (3rd edition) is written, that Lenin Prize was established in 1925, in 1935-1957 it was not awarded at all and since 1957 it was awarded again [1] According to the Great Soviet Encyclopedia Stalin Prize was awarded between 1940-1952. In 1966 when USSR State Prize was established, diplomas and badges of Stalin Prize were changed by diplomas and badges of USSR State Prize. USSR State Prize is the award different from the Lenin Prize, it was awarded since 1966 [2], see also [3]. So, to sum it up, Lenin Prize established June 23 1925 and was awarded April 22 (Lenin's birthday) of each year in 1926-1934 and 1957-1990. USSR State Prize was established in 1940 and was awarded in 1940-1952 and 1966-1991 (in 1940-1952 it was called Stalin Prize). To avoid future placings of Lenin Prize award winners into Stalin Prize article you must correct your mistake as soon as possible, or I'll correct it anyway writing the article USSR State Prize with redirect from Stalin Prize.

List[edit]

The list is only a tip of the iseberg. Isn't it time to put it into a separate article (s), List of USSR State Prize laureates? See List of Nobel laureates (no descriptions) and Nobel Prize in Physics (table with descriptions). Mikkalai 20:51, 22 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Perhaps, but as for myself, I shall not expand it fast, only when I find its mention in the wiki people articles. Cmapm 13:02, 23 Jan 2005 (UTC)
We should certainly mention every recipient who already has an article here. We should also mention those we may think "should" have an article here. I don't see a list of recipients in English.
Should we create a category for recipients? -Willmcw 12:52, 27 November 2005 (UTC)

C'mon, these are two seperate prizes (medals), don't bother to commingle them because the one evolved out of the other. In the dog eat dog environment that existed from the beginning of the revolution, one dog killed the next one. Stalin killed the most dogs. Unfortunately he killed a few million decent, honest and good people as well. After he died, or Beria offed him, they offed Beria. Why change a good thing going, right? So 13 years later they make a new medal in place of the old one. Big deal. You need two seperate articles. Dr. Dan 05:12, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Anyway, the prizes are different ones. And the folks awarded are not responsible for those award founders (mostly). --jno 09:27, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Category[edit]

Should we add a category for Stalin prize laureates?--Nixer 15:56, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

ru.wiki has one. --jno 16:51, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

Okudzhava[edit]

Did Okudzhava really win the last USSR State Prize in art and literature? I mean, it would be kind of awesome, but not only is it not cited, I can’t find a corroborating news report of any kind (or even a contradictory one). Cherry Cotton (talk) 02:47, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Source[edit]

Here are a few listed at an academic institution. We really need a full list form the issuing body though. Rich Farmbrough, 23:17, 5 November 2010 (UTC).
