This is from an article in The New York Times: What Russian Revolution?
The Kremlin could not simply gloss over the Russian Revolution, so Mr. Putin has played it down. The official government order for commemorations referred only to “the revolution of 1917 in Russia” — not Great, or Russian, or Socialist, or October, or any other adjective that would imply glorification or disparagement.
I've looked up a few dictionary for the word 'order', but the only thing I can think of is 'order' as 'instruction.' What is the definition of 'order' here?
