    Yes; it's Romanian indeed and the same medal as seen in post no. 4.

    This is the Medal for the Crusade against Communism [Medalia "Cruciada Împotriva Comunismului"]; large numbers of it were awarded to German personnel.

    The medal was instituted by King Michael of Romania by a decree of 1 April 1942 and awarded to military and civilian personnel participating in the campaign against the Soviet Union, both on the actual Eastern Front and on the Home Front. Thus, it was awarded in large numbers and produced by several manufacturers.

    There were also a number of clasps identifying various operational areas. These clasps were awarded to deployed personnel on active service on the Eastern Front. The clasps were in bronze or silver.
    (According to secondary sources, the silver ones were to distinguish multiple recipients: Officially, no more than one clasp was to be worn at a time. Those eligible for only one wore it in bronze, while those eligible for two or more clasps were to wear only the chronologically last one, but in silver. Nonetheless, period examples often bear several clasps.)

    In addition to Romanians, the medal was also awarded to personnel of Romania's Allies; not just Germans, but Hungarians and Slovaks as well.

    Sorry, I have no reference material on the precise criteria under which the medal was awarded to non-Romanians. (But the recipients surely included troops involved in joint operations.)

    For images of the medal and clasps, see:

    (The latter is in Russian - which I admittedly don't speak - but it has two photographs of German soldiers wearing the medal.)
