    I got this medal as part of a group of awards for an individual. It was awarded in 1999, and I cannot translate the words

    "ЗАХИСНИКУ ВIТЧИЗНИ"

    It was awarded by the President of the Ukraine in 1999.
    Awardee is, I think, Mikhail Andreyovich Sazotsov

    It the medal named after a person, perhaps?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    No the medal ain't named after, not a common practise in postSU.

    Thank you, gentlemen. I appreciate your assistance. I haven't seen any other Post USSR medals, this was part of a group to a Russian Army vet.
