Not my area of expertise. It could range from WWII to the Cold War.
For our experts, you will want to show the clasp on the backside as well.

I don't think the Soviets would have used this symbol during their long occupation of the Ukraine. It was a symbol of Ukrainian nationalism before the Russians took it over after WWI. The Nazi collaborators did use it. And the new Ukrainians used it after the Cold War ended .

Thanks for the help. What I would like to know when they stopped using leather for the belt. None of the Soviet belts I have are leather. Rich A. in Pa.
