On 24 March 2010 the Chief of the President’s Directorate of State Decorations Vladimir Osipov and Ambassador Yury Fedotov awarded a group British Arctic convoy veterans with the Russian commemorative medal “The 65th Anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945”. The award ceremony took place in London aboard HMS Belfast which itself participated in the Northern convoys during WW2.

British sailors who participated in the Arctic convoys with shipments for the USSR during the Second World War, are entitled to the Russian commemorative medal. A number of award ceremonies throughout the United Kingdom are scheduled.

On the same day it was announced that a number of Russian businesses, notably OPK (Joint Industrial Corporation), Severstal and Sovkomflot, will support the project to restore the historic HMS Belfast.
