la más alta distinción ruisa en artes, ciencia y tecnología.
The State Prize of the Russian Federation, officially translated in Russia as Russian Federation National Award, is a state honorary prize established in 1992 as the successor for the USSR State Prize following the breakup of the Soviet Union. In 2004 the rules for selection of laureates and the status of the award were significantly changed making them closer to such awards as the Nobel Prize or the Soviet Lenin Prize.Every year seven prizes are awarded:
Three prizes in science and technology (according to newspaper Kommersant there was a fourth 2008 State Prize for Science and Technology awarded by a special decree of President Dmitri Medvedev but the name of the winner is kept secret because of the confidential character of the work);
Three prizes in literature and the arts;
One prize for humanitarian work (established in 2005).Only three prizes for humanitarian work have been awarded so far: to Patriarch Alexius II, Primate of the Russian Orthodox Church (2005), to Russian writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (2006) and to French President Jacques Chirac (2007).The award consists of a cash prize amounting to 5 million Russian rubles (approximately $200,000), a medal and a certificate. If a number of coauthors equally contributed to a prize-winning work the prize is divided among no more than three authors.The prize is presented by the President of Russia in a ceremony held in Grand Kremlin Palace which is located at the Moscow Kremlin On Russia Day which occurs on 12 June and is broadcast by the major channels in the country.
