Two orders are in the museum of the Gokhran of Russia: the one that belonged to Timoshenko is in the storage and another (unissued one) is in the Diamond Fund.

One order (unissued) is in the Hermitage collection.

Orders awarded to foreign citizens.

The orders awarded to Field Marshal Montgomery, General Eisenhower and Marshal Tito have been transferred to the museums of their countries:

- Eisenhower's order is in the collection of the 34th President's Memorial Library in his hometown of Abilene, Kansas.

- Field Marshal Montgomery's victory is on display at the Imperial War Museum in London.

- Order of Marshal Tito is stored in the Museum of the History of Yugoslavia in Belgrade, Serbia.

Order of Victory of the Polish marshal Rol-Zhymersky remained in the family.

King of Romania, Mihai I remained in the family.
But shouldn't the orders issued to foreign cavaliers be returned to USSR/Russia after their death?
No, they shouldn't.

Interesting original document from April 5, 1945.
