History


This Order was instituted during the Ukrainian Liberation of 1943 by Nikita S. Khrushchev, who convinced Stalin of the award's validity. It was named for the Ukrainian leader Bogdan Mikhailovich Khmelnitsky (1595-1657).

The II Class medal was conferred upon corps commanders, division commanders, brigade commanders, regiment commanders, and their chiefs of staff and deputies, as well as commanders of partisan detachments and their chiefs of staff and deputies, in recognition of:

1) Successful penetration of a fortified belt of defences, successful river crossings, raid into the enemy rear area that significantly halts or delays enemy communications
2) A well-organized partisan detachment resulting in the destruction of a key enemy strongpoint, garrison, liberation of Soviet individuals from German forced labour, and destruction of communications or transport

Variation I has no rivets on the reverse, variation II has 2 rivets, variation III has 3 rivets and variation IV has 2 rivets but the makers mark is located on the bottom center of the star. Serial numbers for variation I range from roughly 1-150, variation II 200-350, variation III 600-910 and variation IV 910-2200.

The obverse Russian inscription translates to: "Bogdan Khmelnitsky".
