To Award (Posthumously) (Nagradit (posmertno)) is a 1987 (filmed 1986) Soviet detective action movie directed by Boris Grigoryev. The story is set in 1945. Soviet frontline scout Yuriy Sosnin (Aleksandr Timoshkin) was considered dead and awarded posthumously, but he survived though suffered memory loss. A female criminal Lyol'ka (Marina Yakovleva) pretends to be Sosnin's sister and draws him into a gang, coming up with his criminal past. Sosnin participates in robberies as a bandits driver, until his wartime friend Andrey Kalashnikov (Evgeniy Leonov-Gladyshev), currently Militsiya officer, recognizes him.

The following weapons were used in the film To Award (Posthumously) (Nagradit (posmertno)):
