(1895 – 1978) Armenian Communist revolutionary, Old Bolshevik, and Soviet statesman during the mandates of Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev, and Brezhnev. He was the only Soviet politician who managed to remain at the highest levels of power within the Communist Party as the leaders changed. A request sent by Comrade Sulimenko to Mikoyan asking if he would approve recognizing the workers who distinguished themselves during the construction of warehouses for fuel. Once the warehouses were successfully completed and given over to the Chinese company ‘Tunsin’ by the Soviet foreign trade association ‘Exportchleb’ [‘Export Bread’], the chairperson of the corresponding Chinese ministry sent Comrade Sulimenko a letter requesting permission to send seven award badges to the workers inscribed with ‘For the completed work for the Chinese people 1947.’ The document is signed in blue pencil by Mikoyan and inscribed ‘(To) C(comrade) Sladkovsky. Prohibit’, dated June 25, 1947. It was originally received as a telephone message, number 241. Staple holes on the left side, 1 page, 6 x 8 inches, very good.
