#Wikidata - the order of the Red Star

Mr Anatoly Kornukov died. He was a Soviet and Russian general, he was a fighter pilot. His story is quite interesting, it includes that he was in charge of the downing of the Korean Air Lines Flight 007.

Mr Kornukov was highly decorated and, among the awards he received was the "order of the Red Star". It is easy to add it for Mr Kornukov but that leaves out the 9,242 other recipients of this award.

As you can imagine, the category on the Russian Wikipedia for recipients of the order of the Red Star knows the most. It takes a little more effort to have AutoList2 add all the missing recipients.

It takes a while for all of them. You can see how many are already done here.
Thanks,
