A translation of the Russian Announcement (quoted below):
On August 31st, 2006 Mikhail Ryabko was invited to the festive reception at the Georgievskii Hall of the Kremlin Palace in Moscow, held in honor of colleagues of the Special Operations Units of the Federal departments of the Russian Federation.
Mikhail was awarded a medal of “Spetsnaz of Russia” which is one of the ways to display the public recognition of the merits of the colleagues and personnel of the Federal departments of the Russian Federation.

31 августа 2006 г. Михаил Васильевич Рябко был приглашён на торжественный приём в Георгиевский зал Большого Кремлевского дворца в честь сотрудников подразделений специального назначения федеральных органов Российской Федерации и награждён медалью «Спецназ России», которая является одной из форм изъявления общественного мнения, направленного на признание заслуг сотрудников и военнослужащих федеральных органов Российской Федерации.


Let’s join to congratulate Mikhail with yet another high medal for his years of service!

When I first met Misha in Moscow - 5 years ago...our groups farewell party had an actual Russian gneral in attendance. Old school type - full military straight spine bearing - wore a moustach that Lenin himself would have admired.

As we went into the requisite round of toasts - Misha deffered to him.
And that Generals wrods are not completely remembered by me - but the look of a true, life long military mans eyes - I will never forget. That look was in Mishas eyes.

The General spoke about peace among the countries and the countries represented by the last group for training assembeled by John Guidduck/Vlad Vasilieve. And when the General raised his vodka shot and said:
"May we only meet/test each other...in the gym". Mishas eyes watered and Vlad laughed - PROSIT! Down the shot went.

To me - the General was one who had seen far more of the military life than I could ever imagine...but Misha had been - well, kicking my butt for days - and touching my heart.

I found it a strange thing to understand - the man who I went to Russia to meet - and a General side by side. And Misha deferred to the general.

Hard to explain in written words.

But a wonderful experience.

The rest of the evening - the General pursued a dalliance from a lith blonde woman from Florida. It was too obvious to miss - language notwithstanding.

It was one 'victory' to be denied him, in life. And John E. Scottys both - are the only other ones here who remember that night - other than VV and MR and Valerie and Raisa.
*****

I am pleased - of course - that Misha has been recipient of this honor....for I am sure it was emotionally pleasing to him. His service to his homeland is - an easily witnessed thing. As an American and boy from Brooklyn - I too have my pride for my birthland. BUT - here is a man who served - at times - so faithfully - that he was able to rise in a system of the Soviets - yet retain his faith. When the Soviet system fell - an inevitable thing, for freedom is kinda ingrained in people - Misha could have his handmade chapel on his property. And so beutiful, it is.

IF I could ask Misha where he keeps the citation - I wonder where he has picked. Love and protection of family and friends will often come first - and then 'country'.

People that go to the country level - ALL I have ever known - are very cool folk. And oneday - maybe centuries from now - we can embody as a species, a family of human kind.

With freedom as the base...and acceptance as the glue - I, in my (perhaps deluded) experience - can envision a time when there are few borders at all - and overall, peace will guide this lil blue ball in space.

Even then, spec forces will be around....to keep that peace alive.

Such 'professionals' will always be needed.

And by then?
***
This robg rant is over - and ends with a personal happiness for Misha having been so honored by the country he loves so well.

I still wonder:
"Misha - where do you keep that medal"?

I will have to try to remember to ask him..next time.

It is always good to read good work is being seen and recognized. It helps to bring us all up to the light and gives courage and perhaps faith to those who lost it in the mud.

My best wishes and congradulations, Sharon.

My highest congratulations to you, Mikhail.

What you and Vladimir have given the world, on top of the service you both have given to your homeland, is beyond measure.

We students cannot thank you enough.
