I went through my website last night updating it. Now I'll have to do the same for the OMSA database... :)

Thanks for all the hard work ferreting out this information, Frank - really appreciated.

Apologies, the Decoration "Participant in Combat Operations" (Нагрудный знак «Участник боевых действий») is still awarded.  The 2013 order annulled it's 2000 creation order but the 2012 Order confirmed its active standing.  Sorry for the temporary confusion.

I can’t really help with the individual medals listed above, but I can honestly add that the Internal Troops medals will ALL be gone soon, if they aren’t already. That’s mainly because the Internal Troops don’t exist anymore, and were broken off from the wider MVD and rebranded the (Russian) National Guard in April 2016. Other MVD forces like the special police units (OMON and SOBR) were pulled away too, leaving just the regular police/Militia to comprise the MVD from now on.

The National Guard has been slow to stand up, but I’d be curious if anyone’s seen evidence of any new insignia or orders/decorations/medals that you could post here…

Wow!  How on Earth did I miss that?  No more VV MVD...  Dang... :o

 Is OMON going into the Ministry of Justice or the FSB?

OMG I hadn't thought of that...  They'll produce new awards...  Megan'll l-o-v-e that!  :D

Oops, sorry...poor wording. I meant that along with the VV, OMON and SOBR were pulled over to the National Guard, too. No change to the Justice Ministry or FSB though. All that's left of the MVD now is the civil police and the counter-narcotics folks (the former FSKN; it was reabsorbed into the MVD back in April too)...

OMON to the National Guard?  How incredibly odd!  :wacky:  It's the equivalent to SWAT...

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
