For participation in armed struggle for the Statehood of Ukraine under the supreme leadership of Chief Ataman Symon Petliura.


The idea of establishing an award in honor of the Head of the Directory and Chief Ataman of the UNR forces S. Petliura arose immediately after his death in 1926. The Society named after S. Petliura proposed to establish a new type of award - a ring to be awarded to all those who fought or worked in the state structures of the UNR under the leadership of S. Petliura. However, the idea of an award in honor of S. Petliura was implemented only in 1932 in the form of an order. Awards began in 1936.

The basis for the cross shape is a somewhat simplified version of the unrealized Ukrainian Order of Liberation, the project of which was approved by the Head of the Directory S. Petliura on October 19, 1920.

The author of the award project is the well-known heraldist and artist, Colonel of the UNR Army Mykola Bytynskyi (Nikolay Bitinskiy).

The Azov Special Operations Detachment (Ukrainian:
Окремий загін спеціального призначення «Азов», romanized: Okremyi zahin
spetsialnoho pryznachennia "Azov"), also known as the Azov Regiment
(Ukrainian: Полк Азов, romanized: Polk Azov) or Azov Battalion until
September 2014, is a unit of the National Guard of Ukraine based in
Mariupol in the coastal region of the Sea of Azov. Azov formed as a
volunteer paramilitary militia in May 2014, and has since been fighting
Russian forces in the Donbas War. It first saw combat recapturing
Mariupol from Russian forces and pro-Russian separatists in June 2014.
It initially operated as a volunteer police company, until it was
formally incorporated into the National Guard on 11 November 2014. In
the wake of the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, the battalion gained
renewed attention for its use by Russia in justifying the invasion and
during the Siege of Mariupol for its role in the defense of the city.
