    Central Asian medals for WW2

    Recommended Posts

    Hi everyone,

    I note that Uzbekistan issued its medal Jasorat (Bravery) to that country's WW2 veterans en masse in 1994 as a commemoration of the Great Patriotic War. My understanding is that Uzbek veterans have since been forbidden to wear their Soviet WW2 medals. Does anyone know if other ex-Soviet republics (particularly the Central Asian -stans) have issued their own WW2 commemorative medals and, if so, have they similarly banned the wearing of Soviet medals?

    Interesting question!  I have no dea, but it seems not unlikely that others of the 'stans' have passed similar regulations.  I have taken the liberty of moving this post to the 'Mongolia' forum, where I suspect those most likely to know the answer are more likely to see it.
