comment Why have the economies of North and South Korea diverged since 1970?
As a note, the pictoral essay you link here seems to include undoubtfully false allegations. For example, executions by mortairs, the idea about literacy control, that radio cannot be turned off (possibly borrowed from Orwell's "1984") and others.

comment Were there in the USSR monasteries decorated with Soviet orders?
Note that any monastery was also a fort and a workshop so they could theoretically contribute during WWII, especially given that the monasteries have an extensive history of supporting the Russian military during the wars. One can speculate that a monastery could successfully defend against a siege or they could contribute in another fashion (providing industrial production, food or curing the wounded).

Well this does not sound that jokingly given that the patriarch Alexis I was decorated with the Red Banner Order in 1946.

Not "краснознаменный монастырь", but "Ордена Красного Знамени ххх монастырь"

@Felix Goldberg absolutely no idea. But I heard from somebody that he was in an "Order of the Red Banner XXX monastery". I have no idea whether it was serious or a joke. On the other hand, why not given that people were working in the monasteries and also they possibly contributed during WWII.
