Also, have there been any new official Russian Federation medals created in the past two years? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Try https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Awards_and_emblems_of_the_Ministry_of_Defence_of_the_Russian_Federation for more information. February 8, 2019 at 8:06 pm #36705 KevinBeyerParticipant Thanks, Megan. I found this article: https://www.defensenews.com/home/2016/03/29/russian-military-orders-10000-medals-for-troops-in-syria/ I have yet to see the medals as shown anywhere other than in the images within this article. I recently purchased examples of the Palmyra medals you mentioned. Although, I cannot honestly vouch for their authenticity. Thanks, Kevin Author Posts Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
