It was just a matter of time.  Following the dissolution of the Internal Troops (VV MVD) and establishment of the Russian National Guard on April 5, 2016 by decree of the President of the Russian Federation № 157, new departmental awards were created by Order of the National Guard of Russia № 50 of February 14, 2017.  I'm presently translating the lenghty document and am already at work producing a new Wiki page.  Here's a teaser below...

The medals are multiplying like mushrooms after rainy summer day. :D

I'll be honest with you...  I almost started crying when I saw this...  I'm seriously considering going back to collecting beer labels! :cheers:

Frank, I think we should recommend you for the Medal "For the Promotion of the National Guard"  - as you are busy telling the medal-loving world about it!

My bosses would L-O-O-O-O-V-E to get a phone call from the Russian consulate informing them I was being decorated by them... :o I'd probably lose my security clearance and get water boarded! :wacky:

Oh by the way...  Have a looksee here: CLICK HERE TO WIKI PAGE

Is there any way for a Russian not to win any medals? This is getting just too ridiculous.

Actually, it's pretty much the same in the USA...  Look at the different service awards then add all of the states' National Guard awards, ROTC, etc...  Those 2 countries really do love their bling! :)

We can skip the call if you wish and just show up at your place for the ceremony. Please, memorise the Russian anthem before next Tuesday. 

The Wiki page is charming. :beer:

Wiki page is magnificiently informative... and bodes fair to distract me from current activities (Malawi on my site and US National Guard and British Campaign Medals on the OMSA site if you must know!).
