    Medal for the Construction of the Main Natural Gas Pipeline Soyuz, late 1970s.

    Medal for the Construction of the Main Natural Gas Pipeline Soyuz, late 1970s.

    In gilded brass, very massive medal 37.3 mm wide; the suspension is 43.6 x 28.6 mm. Shows stamped mint mark "LMD" on the еуеlet and raised logo of the Leningrad Mint on the reverse of the suspension device. The obverse shows hands passing the torch with writing "Soyuz" ("Union") and the dates of the construction, 1975-1978. On the reverse is a scroll with the schematic drawing of the pipeline from its starting point near the Siberian city of Orenburg to the Soviet western border and on to Central Europe. At the bottom is nicely detailed tractor laying a pipe. Designation "СЭВ" (aka Comecon in English usage or Council for Mutual Economic Assistance, a Soviet-dominated trade union of the Communist countries).

    In excellent condition; shows only very light stains to finish, mostly on the reverse and not detracting. The ribbon is nice and clean.

    The medal was issued by the Executive Committee of Comecon to workers and engineers who had taken part in the construction of the strategic Soyuz pipeline. When finished to great fanfare, this pipeline greatly increased Soviet ability to sell natural gas to Central and Western Europe. It remains a formidable instrument of Russia's political pressure to this day.
