According to this story the Russians have once again honoured those who took part in the Arctic Convoys that kept Russia functioning despite the Nazi threat. Such honours have become a bone of contention in recent years with the medals awarded on the 40th anniversary being given the "official" seal of approval to be worn alongside British decorations whilst subsequent awards have been overlooked. What will happen with this latest offering remains to be seen.
