Foreign medal recipients


Recommended Posts

I know that this might be a stupid question, but is it common for citizens of former Soviet states, still to be awarded russian medals? A couple of days ago, a friend gave me a medal, with what I believe is a ukrainian document.

That was quite normal-- in 1995. I have ONLY seen Russian and Ukrainian issued documents for the common/shared medal, so don't know if there were other Republican-specific paprwork issued.

No idea what was done for the 2005 ones.

This was an OFFICIAL award and not to be confused wth the lunatic vanity trinkets sold since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

The same happened with the 1996 Zhukov Medal - I have a Russian, Belarusian and Ukrainian document for this medal.

It was still the case in 2005... I've got a cased medal for 60 years of victory with Ukrainian document that I've received as a gift from a relative in Ukraine. They were awarding them in the spring of 2005 and there was some leftovers... so he was kind enough to think about me! This is why the document is not filled (they were pre-filled and were just missing the awardee name to be entered at the local awarding site).

Compared to the 'War Veterans badge'..

Wow, that's a great set. I have never seen that one before.

Hmmmmm, I must admit that I have not seen much at all, since I am new to this collecting field. :blush:
