    Russian ribbon bar ID needed

    I believe the top row contains 5 ribbons of varying widths: 2, 3 and 5 from the Russian MoD. The 1st ribbon might be the state Jubilee Medal "300 Years of the Russian Navy", it would explain its position in front of MoD awards. The only similar ribbon known to me is for the Soviet Order of Bogdan Khmelnitsky 1st class and I find that quite difficult to believe considering the absence of any related WW2 ribbons. The 2nd is the Medal "For Military Valour" 2nd Class, the 3rd is from the Russian MoD but not clear enough for a positive ID, the 5th looks like the medal for 150 Years of Railway Troops of Russia. The bottom possibly contains 4 ribbons also of varying widths, my guess would be public awards (unofficial).
  4. Medal "Marshal of the Soviet Union A.M. Vasilevsky" (Медаль «Маршал Советского Союза А.М.Василевский») Awarded to officers of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and officers of operational directorates, divisions (departments) of the branches of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, of military districts, of the Northern Fleet, of arms of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, for exemplary performance of military duties and high performance indicators, with service of 10 years or more. The medal may also be awarded to citizens who are in the reserve or retired, for previous military service in the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces who have served in the military for 25 years or more, as well as to other citizens of the Russian Federation, for assistance in solving the tasks assigned to the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Medal "Army General Shtemenko" (Медаль «Генерал армии Штеменко») Awarded to officers of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, to military and civilian personnel of the organs of organisational mobilisation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation or of structural units for the protection of State secrets of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, who served (worked) in organs of organisational mobilisation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, in military commissariats, in structural units for the protection of State secrets of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, for a minimum of five calendar years: for great personal contribution to mobilisation readiness of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, for the organisation and participation in activities aimed at the mobilisation readiness of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, for the implementation of activities aimed at the protection of State secrets of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

    and here pages 100-103 : https://issuu.com/voinbrat/docs/vb5_45__2008_web

    Tell me if you need help with translation.

      Francois, check it out: I asked the guy in the thread and he confirmed the symbolism of the white-blue-red gems.

  11. And now... Jubilee Medal "25 Years of the Federal Agency for the Safe Storage and Destruction of Chemical Weapons". Est. 2017-05-10 Order № 111. Not the most attractive thing I've seen...
  12. A new medal established by popular demand and approved by minister Shoigu in November 2016. Medal "Veteran of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation" Est. 2016-11-24 order № 770. Awarded for many years of honest service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation if previously awarded state awards of the Russian Federation (or of the USSR), or awarded the Russian Federation Presidential Certificate of Honour or of Gratitude, or if awarded two or more Defence Ministry of the Russian Federation departmental decorations, and having served with no disciplinary problems for 25 years or more in calendar years at the time of retirement from the military. It is here with its Soviet predecessor and the Soviet medal for veteran of labour. I find it odd the ribbon chosen is more similar to the the Soviet civilian than the military medal.
