Gday gents,

here i have the bottom of a medal document which is almost unreadable, the only words i can make out are: komandira, VV NKVD and Podpolkovnik

If anyone can help me decipher the whole thing such as who signed it, what division, etc that would be amazing.

Thanks, 
Damo

Командир 21-й Стрелковой Бригады ВВ НКВД УО = Commander of the 21st Rifle Brigade of the NKVD

"HKBD" = The People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs (Народный Kомиссариат Bнутренних Дел)

Подполковник Петрунин = Lieutenant-Colonel Petrunin

"УО" may be an acronym for "Учебный Отдел" or Training Division

"BB" = may be an acronym for "Внутренние Войска" or Internal Troops

Everything is perfectly readable! :D 

Bill has covered almost all of it. "BB" stands indeed for Internal Troops. But "УО" stands for "Украинскй Округ", i.e. Ukrainian District. 

The 21 detached Rifle Brigade VV NKVD was disbanded in November 1945 while being located in Ukraine.

Awarded to Bekmen Amankuyovich? Stamov, a Kazakh

-Unfortunately document for Order Patriotic war is missing however ageing signs are similar to Moscow and Stalingrad medal and reputable dealer said it belonged to same man.

-Unfortunately the first name has rubbed off the Stalingrad document but match Moscow document as it says NKVD in Stalingrad document (1945) and MVD in Moscow document (1946).

-Order has seen enamel repair on left arm and hammer and sickle are slightly deformed, nonetheless a nice low serial wartime piece (No.239,395).

-I have tried to research awards through podvig.naroda and pamyat.naroda but failed, probably because he served in NKVD.

Enjoy,

Thank you for sharing!  His middle name is AmankuLovich, i.e. АманкуЛович

The citation is not available online. There are only single citations from 21st Rifle Brigade of the NKVD available online. Research options are limited, but not zero.
