Veteran of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation

Recommended Posts

A new medal established by popular demand and approved by minister Shoigu in November 2016.

Medal "Veteran of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation"  Est. 2016-11-24 order № 770.

Awarded for many years of honest service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation if previously awarded state awards of the Russian Federation (or of the USSR), or awarded the Russian Federation Presidential Certificate of Honour or of Gratitude, or if awarded two or more Defence Ministry of the Russian Federation departmental decorations, and having served with no disciplinary problems for 25 years or more in calendar years at the time of retirement from the military.

It is here with its Soviet predecessor and the Soviet medal for veteran of labour.  I find it odd the ribbon chosen is more similar to the the Soviet civilian than the military medal.
