New World,

Do you have a picture of the back? BTW, the ribbon should be blue.

Alexei, you are 100% right! I just checked Borisov and the ribbon should be blue.

It looks like military titles had red ribbons and civilian ones had blue.

But besides having wrong color ribbon - the badge look genuine.

New World,

The front looks OK, but the reverse is more indicative.
