The Russia The Order of Friendship Medal Badge, top Rare

The Order of Friendship (Russian: Орден Дружбы, Orden Druzhby) is a state decoration of the Russian Federation established by Boris Yeltsin by presidential decree 442 of 2 March 1994[1] to reward Russian and foreign nationals whose work, deeds and efforts have been aimed at the betterment of relations with the Russian Federation and its people. The design of order was created by Alexander Zhuk. Its statute was later amended by presidential decree 19 of 6 January 1999,[2] presidential decree 1999 of 7 September 2010,[3] presidential decree 1631 of 16 December 2011,[4] and presidential decree 308 of 16 March 2012.[5] It can trace its lineage to the Soviet Order of Friendship of Peoples, also designed by Alexander Zhuk.
