    This are insignias from my collection.

    The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (Russian: Вооружё́нные Си́лы Росси́йской Федера́ции Transliteration: Voruzhonnije Síly Rossíyskoj Federátsii) are the military services of Russia, established after the break-up of the Soviet Union. On 7 May 1992 Boris Yeltsin signed a decree establishing the Russian Ministry of Defence and placing all Soviet Armed Forces troops on the territory of the RSFSR under Russian Federation control. The Supree Commander of the Armed Forces is the President of the Russian. Although the Russian army was formed in 1991, Russian military dates its roots back to the times of the Kievan Rus'. Currently the Russian army employs about 1,100,000 Regular troops and about another 1,000,000 Reserve troops. Russia is one of the few countries that has an fully indigenous arms industry, producing its own military equipment.

    The Russian Ground Forces (Russian: Сухопутные войска Российской Федерации, tr.: Suhopútnuiye voyská Rosseeyskoy Federácii) are the land forces of the Russian Federation, formed from parts of the Soviet Army in 1992. The formation of these forces posed economic challenges after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and required reforms to professionalize the force during the transition. While the Russian Ground Forces in their present form are only about twenty years old, Russian officers trace their antecedents' history through the Imperial Russian era back to the time of Kievan Rus'. Since 1992, the Ground Forces have withdrawn many thousands of troops from former Soviet garrisons abroad, while remaining extensively committed to the Chechen Wars, peacekeeping, and other operations in the Soviet successor states (what is known in Russia as the "hear abroad"). The most recent clash was the 2008 South Ossetia war with Georgian forces.

    The Russian Navy or VMF (Russian: Военно-Морской Флот (ВМФ) России- or literally Military Maritime Fleet of Russia) is the naval arm of the Russian Armed Forces. The present Russian Navy succeeded the Navy of the Commonwealth of Independent States which succeeded the Soviet Navy after the dissolution of the Soviet in 1991. The regular Russian Navy was originally established by Peter the Great (Peter I) in October of 1696. Ascribed to Peter I is the oft quoted statement: "A ruler that has but an army has one hand, but he who has a navy has both." The symbols of the Russian Navy, the St. Andrew's flag and ensign (seen to the right), and most of its traditions were established personally by Peter I. The Russian Navy possesses the vast majority of the former Soviet naval forces, and currently comprises the Northern Fleet, the Russian Paific Fleet, the Russian Black Sea Fleet, the Russian Baltic Fleet, the Russian Caspian Flotilla, Naval Aviation, and the Russian Coastal troops (consisting of the Naval Infantry (Marines) and Coastal Missile and Artillery Troops).

    The Russian Airborne Troops or VDV (from "Vozdushno-Desantnye Voiska", Russian: Воздушно-десантные войска = ВДВ; Air-landing Forces) is an arm of service of the Armed forces of the Russian Federation. First formed before World War II, the force undertook two significant airborne operations and a number of smaller jumps during the war and after 1945 for many years was the largest airborne force in the world.

    Cossacks (Russian: Казаки́, Kazaki; Ukrainian: Козаки́, Kozaky; Polish: Kozacy) are a group of predominantly East Slavic martial people presently numbering up to 7 million.

    True origins are disputed, and many theories exist on their formation, but the Cossacks enter history as members of military communities the lower Don and Dnieper rivers. These were fueled by many migrants who left the adjacent northern states of Moscow and Lithuania due to social and religious pressures. By the start of the 16th century, they swelled into large militant states (hosts).

    The Dnieper Cossacks of Ukraine formed the Zaporozhian Sich centered on the fortified Dnieper islands amid the wild fields. Initially a vassal of Poland-Lithuania, the increasing social and religious pressure from the Commonwealth in the mid 17th century, forced them to proclaim an independent Cossack Hetmanate, which began a massive rebellion under Hetman Bohdan Khmelnytsky. Afterwards, the Treaty of Pereyaslav with Russia, secured Ukraine within the growing state.


    After the Collapse of the Soviet Union, the Cossack lifestyle and its ideas have made a return in Russia. Special Cossack units exist in the Russian Military, while Cossacks also have a parallel civil administration and police duties in their home territories that have become an integral part of contemporary society. There are Cossack organizations in Kazakhstan, Ukraine and other countries.
