Just wanted to poke at you, slightly. Major General Sosnitski (chief commander of the Russian insurgents into the Stone) was the equivalent of an American Brigadier General. Hence, only one star (at least, one for each lapel) he could give to Mirski.

For some reason, the Soviet ranks go Major, Lieutenant, Colonel, and General generals - whereas for American forces, it's Be My Little General.
