  2. I've always tried to remain as neutral as possible in my descriptions and/or opinions on current Russian awards, but I must admit this one completely caught me off guard!  It's very nature seems like a throw back to the Soviet Era.  or is it just me?

    Frank, I am only now seeing this thread.  What an AWESOME award.  You have basically would've been a citation for a Hero order.  And the medal itself is a duplicate issue.  Double win.  Igor, as usual, thank you for posting all of this research. You brought this medal to life.  I thoroughly love reading your threads.  It's a bummer to see this award dropped suddenly all the way from Hero to ORB... they could've at least given him an Lenin or one of the higher screwback awards. 

    Thanks, I was quite surprised myself! :)

    I'm struggling with identification of Russian ribbons. Any help is much appreciated!

    CAM01249.jpg.550cf682d80230f8d4ccb3316060d5b9.jpg

    Unfortunately, the photo is what it is...

    PS

    I should have mentioned that the person is a diplomat and was in naval uniform as a Major if that helps.

    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).

  7. Medal "Marshal of the Soviet Union A.M. Vasilevsky" (Медаль «Маршал Советского Союза А.М.Василевский»)

    134438338_MedalMarshaloftheSovietUnionAMVasilevsky.jpg.fa90ec6a4af989d954bb35829b648ba2.jpg

  11. 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.

    But where do they go in the order of precedence of Russian Ministry of Defence awards?

    I posted the order of precedence for medals earlier in another post, anything new, unless specifically mentioned in its establishment order, goes at the end of the line.  As for these breast badges, they go below state awards worn in a similar fashion in the order of establishement as per medals.  Since these are mostly bestowed to NCOs and junior officers, thet don't have to shuffle much out of the way unlike their generals...

  13. The Russian Defense Ministry continues to issue awards quite specific to branches and specialities.  These are for Electronic Warfare Troops:

    Medal "For Service in Electronic Warfare Troops"

    Awarded to military personnel of all ranks of the Electronic Warfare Troops of the Russian Federation with at least 5 years of service, for valour, ingenuity and courage displayed during service, for excellent performance of duties. May also be awarded to citizens of the Russian Federation, whose actions helped in the development and establishment of the Electronic Warfare Troops of the Russian Federation.

    Decoration "For Distinction" of Electronic Warfare Troops awarded to soldiers, sergeants and master sergeants.

  14. Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM).

    Medal "Participant in emergency humanitarian operations". Established on 27 December 1995 by ministerial order 885.  Awarded to individuals or organisations for their involvement in humanitarian relief operations and contributions to the organization of such future actions as well as for dedication and courage.

    The medal is also awarded with English text in lieu of Russian.  This is the only medal of this ministry NOT on a pentagonal mount, probably because it is awarded to so many foreigners.

    No idea why they slapped "UN" on it...  Not mentioned in any of the texts.
