Federal Border Service of Russia 1993-2003[edit]

Emblem of the FBS of Russia.jpg

Created on 30 December 1993 to replace the Border Guard Service of the KGB following the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Federal Border Service of Russia (Russian: Федеральная пограничная служба России) barely lasted a decade. Initially given full autonomy by president Yeltsin in an effort to reduce the power of the KGB, it was re absorbed into the new Federal Security Service on 11 March 2003 by president Putin and renamed the Border Guard Service of the FSB of the Russian Federation (Russian: Пограничная служба Федеральной службы безопасности Российской Федерации). The Federal Border Service had its own awards subordinate to state awards. These awards are listed below with their establishment orders. These awards, although now redesigned to be in line with the awards of the FSB, remain listed in the order of precedence of the FSB and worn on the uniform of pre 2003 recipients.
