The Decoration "For Impeccable Service" (Russian: Знак Отличия «За Безупречную Службу») is a state decoration of the Russian Federation aimed at recognising impeccable civilian or military service to the state beyond the scope of normal long service medals.

Award History[edit]

The Decoration "For Impeccable Service" was established by presidential decree №442 on March 2, 1994.[1] Its statute was further amended by presidential decree 1099 of September 7, 2010.[3]

Award Statute[edit]

The Decoration "For Impeccable Service" is divided into a civilian and a military division with different award criteria. Both are awarded for service of between 15 and 50 years.

  • Civilian Division: the civilian decoration is awarded to citizens of the Russian Federation, elected or appointed to a position in accordance with the Constitution of the Russian Federation and federal laws, as well as to civil servants, for concrete contributions to the development of Russian statehood, strengthening the rule of law and order, and impeccable service of more than 15 years, as well as for other productive activities which brought substantial benefits to the Fatherland.[4]
  • Military Division: the military decoration is awarded to members of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation with impeccable service of not less than 15 consecutive years, and who were awarded the Order or Medal for Courage displayed in the performance of military duties, or two or more awards of federal ministries or governmental agencies.[4]

The Decoration "For Impeccable Service" is worn on the right side of the chest after the insignia to an honorary title of the Russian Federation, and if worn in the presence of state awards of the USSR, above them.[2][3]
