Orders and Medals of the New Russia

From May 2019, the Russian military will be able to place only ten state orders, medals or other departmental heraldic signs on the two bars on the left side of the jacket, Izvestiya writes, citing sources in the Russian military. Such a restriction is valid only for participants in the parade on Red Square, but the Ministry of Defense intended to extend it to all Russian military personnel. The department planned to introduce changes to the order on “Rules for wearing military uniforms, insignia, departmental insignia and other heraldic signs in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation” this month. The amendments will prohibit the wearing of civilian awards and insignia of social organizations on the dress military uniform.

The wearing of various kinds of orders issued by public organizations during solemn events often caused criticism from the public. In particular, the opinion is expressed that such actions discredit military service. In addition, there were currently several public organizations in Russia that arbitrarily distribute rewards to citizens, similar to real military orders.

The owner of the maximum number of state military awards is Igor Rodobolsky, Colonel of the Aerospace Force of Russia. This is stated in the Book of Records of the Armed Forces of Russia, posted on the website of the Ministry of Defense. According to the Book of Records, Rodobolsky took part in the hostilities in Afghanistan, and also served during the armed conflict in the Chechen Republic and in the territories adjacent to Russia in 1994-1996. He also participated in counter-terrorism operations in the North Caucasus region in 1999. In 2003, Rodobolsky was awarded the title Hero of the Russian Federation for the courage and heroism that he showed in the performance of combat missions in the Caucasus.
