Eight families with many children were invited to the ceremony: the Khodyrevs 19th 12 children from the Kaluga region, the Morokovys with 12 children from the Republic of Komi, the Savelyevs with 12 children from the Volgograd region, the Izmailovys with 7 children from Ingushetia, the Ryabovs 19th 13 children from the Nizhny Novgorod region, the Bagins with 10 children from the Sverdlovsk region, the Belykhs with 8 children from the Trans-Baikal Territory, and the Budnitses with 9 children from the Khabarovsk Territory.
Each family received the order, 50,000 roubles and a certificate. Each parent will also get the sign of the order and its miniature copy to bear on solemn occasions. The sign is a blue cross with a coat of arms in the centre against a red background. A version for mothers is provided with a silk ribbon and that for feathers has a pentagonal suspension device.
The Order of Parental Glory is a state award in Russia. It was established on May 13, 2008 to reward deserving parents of exceptionally large families.
The Order of Parental Glory is awarded to parents or adoptive parents who are married, in a civil union, or in the case of single-parent families, to one of the parents or adoptive parents who are/is raising, or have raised seven or more children as citizens of the Russian Federation for leading a healthy family life, being socially responsible, providing an adequate level of health care, education, physical, spiritual and moral development of the children, full and harmonious development of their personality, and setting an example to strengthen the institution of the family and child rearing.
The Order is awarded when the seventh child reaches the age of three, and in the presence of the other living children, except in the cases of older children who were killed or missing in action in defence of the Fatherland or its interests, in the performance of military, official or civic duties, who died as a result of injury, concussion or disease received in these circumstances, either because of occupational injury or illness.
