Vasily Pavlovich Kozlov
Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd Class nr. 296650 was awarded by Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of February 1, 1945 to the 37- or 38-year-old civilian Vasily Pavlovich Kozlov (Василий Павлович Козлов), the Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Bui Raion, Kostroma Oblast.
During the war, the Bui Raion (District) was one of 26 raions of the Kostroma Oblast (Province), a few hundred miles northeast of Moscow, with Bui being the oblast's second largest city. The Executive Committee (ispolkom) was a raion's highest body of executive power; in a way the position of Chairman can therefore be compared to that of a mayor.
