CHAPTER XV.—The Conferring of Orders, Medals,

etc.

In the event of State Consuls wishing to apply to the Russian Embassy
or Legation to which they are subordinate with a view to procuring
the decorations with medals or orders of foreign subjects who are
not in the actual service of the Russian State, as, for instance, Russian
Elective Consular Officers, it is necessary that the State Consuls
should mention in their report :—

1. Whether the distinction in view would correspond with the
social standing of the candidate.

2. Whether the candidate has previously been the recipient of
Russian marks of distinction, and if so, what these are.

3. To what religious denomination he belongs.

On receipt of these particulars the Russian Embassy or Legation
must make sure that the local Government has no objection that a
Russian mark of distinction be conferred upon the candidate.1

Russian orders can only be conferred on foreigners who :—

1. Belong to the noble and titled classes, where such exist ; or

2. Hold the rank as officers of the army or the civil service ; or

3. Have finished a high school or university education in Russia
or abroad.

When proposing foreigners for Russian orders a certificate
testifying to one or other of these facts must be appended.

This restriction does not apply in the case of Russian medals to
foreign subjects.’-
