Statutes for award of the order were instituted on May 5, 1930 with the first order awarded on May 13, 1930 to Civil war hero, V.K. Blukher. At first, the order was awarded to high ranking officers and officials. The requirements for award of the order are as follows: The Order of the Red Star is awarded for outstanding achievements in the defence of the USSR and for actions in maintaining state security in times of peace. It was later awarded for lengths of service until the Medal for Irreproachable Service was established on September 14, 1957.
