This medal really stands out with its straight mount! Wouldn't you know it, this is the ONLY award in the extensive order where the location where it should be worn isn't mentioned! Right breast? Left breast? Above others, below? *SIGH* :rolleyes:

Medal "For Merit in Service in Special Circumstances"

Awarded to employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, servicemen of Internal Troops of Russia, federal civil servants, employees of the Interior Ministry of Russia already awarded the Decoration "For Distinguished Service in Special Circumstances”, for high performance in service and diligence in the performance of tasks during a period of martial law, a state emergency, an anti-terrorist operation, in the context of an armed conflict, in the aftermath of accidents, natural or man-made disasters or other emergencies.

Medal "For Labour Valour"

Awarded to federal civil servants and employees of the Interior Ministry of Russia for many years of fruitful work, achievements in performing duties, high work quality, the successful implementation of tasks entrusted to bodies of internal affairs or internal troops of Russia, for contribution to the improvement of activities. (I'm truly surprised this one took so long to appear!)

Medal "For Impeccable Service in the MVD"

Awarded to police officers and servicemen of internal troops of Russia, with length of service of 20 years or more and previously awarded departmental distinctions of the Interior Ministry of Russia, for excellent service and significant contribution to the development and improvement of the Russian Interior Ministry. (I don't understand this one, the criteria are those of a "veteran's medal" but the MVD already has one.)

These were created not for the sake of glory, but for the sake of Frank!

As Lenin said once: "To collect, collect and to collect once again!"

Or something like that ... :whistle:

I'm starting to believe you might be right... Seems to be a lot of overlap with existing awards.

I'd better understand the creation and reason for being of the Medal "For Labour Valour" (Медаль «За трудовую доблесть») if the order would've simultaneously cancelled the Medal "For Merit in Financial and Economic Activities" (Медаль «За Заслуги в финансово-экономической деятельности») and the Medal "For Merit in Management Activities" (Медаль «За Заслуги в управленческой деятельности»).

Why create the Medal "For Courage During a Rescue" (Медаль «За смелость во имя спасения») when the MVD already has the Medal "For Valour In Service" (Медаль «За Доблесть В Службе») and the Medal "For Bravery in a Fire" (Медаль «За Отвагу На Пожаре») which could easily fit the bill. Not to mention the state awards established specifically for that: the Order of Courage (Орден Мужества) and Life Saving Medal (Медаль «За спасение погибавших»). And if that isn't enough, the MTsS (МЧС) also has dedicated awards for this that could span inter-ministerial boundaries: the Medal "For Bravery in a Fire" (Медаль «За Отвагу На Пожаре») and Medal "For the salvation of the drowning" (Медаль «За спасение погибающих на водах»), Minuscule amendments to some award prerequisites and criteria would've amply sufficed.

The Medal "For Impeccable Service in the MVD" (Медаль «За безупречную службу в МВД»), simply change 20 years for 25 and you have the "Veteran of the MVD" medal (Медаль «Ветеран МВД»). And since the recipient will be receiving his or her 20 year service medal anyway on that day... Why bother with a 2nd award for basically the same thing?

The Medal "For Merit in Service in Special Circumstances" (Медаль «За заслуги в службе в особых условиях») is borderline ludicrous... There are also 5 or 6 other ministerial and state awards that already amply fit the bill.

This is just weird... IMHO...

If you remove the Umalatovas, the medals of the communist party and of the various public organizations, a few of them won't even have a name tag left!!

Who is this general? That's the rank insignia of a lieutenant-colonel... In an air force uniform... Wearing Interior Ministry, Border Service, Umalatova and public medals, decorations and badges... I'll watch the video at home, I'm at work now and our system blocks Youtube.

Weird?!

Come on man!

Lighten up!

We are living in heroic times! :lol:

That man isn't wearing a single real award... Except maybe the badge for participation in combat ops of interior troops... What do you think the chances are he really earned it? Sad...

Did Yakubovich lie about military service to get the job? Did he simply dress like this for a sketch?

I think these trinkets are official "gifts" from his "fans".

Come on! Dude turns this freaking wheel for 23 years in a row ... Selflessly :whistle:

I bet Alex Trebek is bursting with envy :lol:

Gifts from fans??????????? :o:banger:

Some fans have slightly diverging opinions of our TV celebrity... http://idiot.fm/2013/06/13/potomu-chto-myi-pilotyi/

According to his bio, these are the ONLY awards he ever received:

There is no mention anywhere of him having ever served in the military, not even in interior troops. Maybe this photo was taken when he ran for the State Duma thinking a military past would get him votes?

He looks like a drunken Santa who fell in the XMas tree!

His bio on Russian Wiki says:
заслуженный артист Российской Федерации (1997) (Honored Artist of the Russian Federation) ORDER http://document.kremlin.ru/page.aspx?1172406
народный артист Российской Федерации (2002) (People's Artist of the Russian Federation) ORDER http://document.kremlin.ru/page.aspx?1036527
After the Order of Friendship, it says "medals"...
Now, I can accept he "might have" a few medals like the Медаль «За Боевое Содружество» (Military cooperation/brotherhood medals) or Медаль «За Содействие» (medal "For the Promotion of...") from various ministries and departments, I've seen other artists receive them simply for appearing at functions or concerts in honour of said ministry or department, but an officer's commission and a chest full of gongs? Nope...

Exactly!

" Medals "

Next step - issue these trinkets to kindergarden teachers who are busy with servicemen's children :whistle:

... but an officer's commission and a chest full of gongs? Nope...

Well, he is a "star". At least according to his wiki page :lol:
