Hello!  I'll try shortly!  Because there is a lot of information!

Designed in 1950. Author - Neil Hasevich. Ukrainian painter, graphic artist, public and political figure, member of the organization of Ukrainian nationalists and the Ukrainian Main Liberation Rada. Officially released in 1967 and 1987. They were appointed to award all the soldiers of the Ukrainian underground during the period from 1952 to 1955.

The inscription on the badges : For Ukraine! For the will! For the people!

Here is the book in the Ukrainian language for free reading! It tells about the differences between the awards designed by Neil Hasevich!

Thanks very much for the information on this badge.  So being warded on these different dates would indicate they were awarded to commemorate the passing of time?

Regards,

Gordon

The first official awards were held in 1967!  And then in 1987!  In 1951 the badges only came from Germany to occupied Ukraine!  Awards were not made!  Ukraine in the face of Ukrainian insurgents at that time fought with a communist repressive machine!
