As a rule, the Order of Alexander Nevsky is not the first award for the holder: it is assumed that a citizen of the Russian Federation presented to the Order has previously received any state encouragement. The Order can be also awarded to foreign citizens for outstanding achievements in establishment of economic, political, cultural, military contacts between Russia and other countries.
