Update – 20th June 2013
The Ushakov medal is presented to Veterans…
We are delighted that the British Government has now allowed the Russia to present these medals to the surviving veterans
The Russian Government has awarded the Ushakov medal for bravery and courage to World War II veterans from across the world.
The governments of Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA have granted permission to the veterans of the Arctic Convoys to be awarded the Ushakov Medal, however the British government has refused permission to our own veterans.
