    why is russia/udssr together but germany west/east divided?

    • Admin

      Because Russia / USSR were one country to begin with; separated later, however, West and East Germany were two countries joined recently.

      It is an internationally accepted approach.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers

    USSR doesn’t exist anymore. But Kashakstan, Georgia, Estland. Lithuania, Ukraine, Belarus (and what have you) are independent countries. So why shouldn’t they be ranked with their own medals??
