Putin awarded the title of Hero of Russia to a member of the staff of the "Young Guard" Tretyakevich

The President of the Russian Federation, by his decree of September 22, awarded the title of Hero of Russia to a member of the headquarters of the Soviet underground organization "Young Guard" Viktor Tretyakevich, the telegram channel RIA_Kremlinpool reports.

The published copy of the decree says that Putin awarded the title of Hero to Tretyakevich for "active participation in the creation and activities of the underground Komsomol organization Young Guard" during the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 and the heroism shown in this.

The Young Guard organization operated in 1942-1943 in the city of Krasnodon, Voroshilovgrad Oblast, Ukrainian SSR, occupied by Nazi troops. About her work and destruction by the Nazis, the novel by A.A. Fadeev "The Young Guard" was written, which was part of the school curriculum of the USSR.

Tretyakevich was considered a traitor for many years, and therefore was not reflected in a positive way in the novel, which was perceived as a historical document. Rehabilitated in the early 1960s.
