Below are decorations that were bestowed by the Border Service of Russia (1994-2003) and that ae still bestowed to this day (according to Russian friends), unchanged, by the Border Guard Service of the FSB. They are bestowed following a set number of patrols along the borders of the Russian Federation. A patrol consists of two four hour outings in a 24 hour period.

Note: some Russian colleagues on other forums claimed these were nothing more than unofficial badges purchased by post commanders or the border guards themselves... These claims fell silent once I found the official site of the Border Guard Service of the FSB where they are prominently displayed with the other awards.

This particular variant is also available in most markets. I am unsure if it is a new version for the FSB, an unadopted prototype or simply yet another variant. If anybody has some data on this subject, I would really appreciate it.
