What is this 1916 medal?

Recommended Posts

 

I believe this is a Russian Orthodox religious or friendship medal commemorating the appointing of the Metropolis in 1649 in Russia. But since I cannot read/write cyrillic I'm stumped as to what it is. 

There's an American flag in there and looks like a Russian one as well.
 
Anyone can help decipher it? Thanks in advance.
