Ivan Belov (commander)
Ivan Panfilovich Belov (27 June 1893 – 29 June 1938) was a Soviet Komandarm 1st rank. He was born in what is now Vologda Oblast. He fought in the Imperial Russian Army during World War I and later in the Red Army during the Russian Civil War. He received the Order of the Red Banner twice (1920 and 1921). During the Great Purge, he was one of the judges during the trial of Marshal of the Soviet Union Mikhail Tukhachevsky during the Case of Trotskyist Anti-Soviet Military Organization in June 1937. Belov was himself arrested on 7 January 1938 and later executed. After the death of Joseph Stalin, he was rehabilitated (exonerated) posthumously in 1955.
