Unapproved awards of the Defense Ministry

Recommended Posts

Below are 3 unapproved (albeit quite nice) decorations.  For some reason, the then defense minister simply refused to sign their establishment orders.  You might find them on the market, even on the odd Russian service uniform...  But make no mistake, these were never officially approved.

50 Years of Strategic Missile (Rocket) Forces.  Read in an article the commanding general's face just dropped when the minister simply laughed and walked away...

Hi! Just a question to understand:

Were these medals produced - before - approval (which didn't happen later) in anticipation that they would be approved - or - were, and are, they (being) produced - after and even in spite of - their approval had been turned down?

Cheers
