Unknown award with UN connectuion?

Recommended Posts

Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations (EMERCOM).

Medal "Participant in emergency humanitarian operations". Established on 27 December 1995 by ministerial order 885.  Awarded to individuals or organisations for their involvement in humanitarian relief operations and contributions to the organization of such future actions as well as for dedication and courage.

The medal is also awarded with English text in lieu of Russian.  This is the only medal of this ministry NOT on a pentagonal mount, probably because it is awarded to so many foreigners.

No idea why they slapped "UN" on it...  Not mentioned in any of the texts.
