It may seem there is nothing obscure about it: Well, the medal on the occasion of anniversary of the victory. But no! This is not a medal on the occasion of the next anniversary of the victory over fascism, as it was under the Soviet Union, Joinfo.ua reports.
If in the times of the Soviet Union veterans were awarded medals and orders in honor of the anniversaries of the victory, the current Russian medal is given just for participation in the Victory Parade.
"Participation" … See? That is, those, who participated in it. So, if the "big winners" of fascism – the Mongolian soldiers – take part in the Victory Parade, they will be awarded too?
In general, the idea of such medals would not be so bad if were not brought to the point of absurdity. However, like many things in Russia.
