The city of Irkutsk was awarded the honorary title of the Russian Federation City of Labour Glory for the significant contribution of its residents to the Victory in the 1941–1945 Great Patriotic War, for ensuring the uninterrupted production of military and civilian equipment by industrial enterprises, and large-scale labour heroism and dedication displayed during the War.
The production of aircraft, tanks, and ammunition was organised at Irkutsk enterprises to help the war effort. Furthermore, Irkutsk became the first city in the Soviet Union where workers sponsored the production of a tank column called ‘Irkutsk Komsomolets’. In May 1942, the tanks were handed over to a front-line military unit.
By the beginning of the Great Patriotic War, over 20 large industrial enterprises were operating in Irkutsk. In the first months of the war, over 20 enterprises of various industries were evacuated to Irkutsk. In 1986, Irkutsk was awarded the Order of the October Revolution ‘... For outstanding services of the working people of the city of Irkutsk and their contribution to the fight against the Nazi invaders during the Great Patriotic War.’
