This medal marks the 100th anniversary of the Ukrainian revolution of 1917 – 1921, and the establishment of the Supreme Court of the Ukrainian People’s Republic. The court was created in December 1917 by Ukraine’s Central Council. It was the highest judicial authority of the time and the forerunner of Ukraine’s modern Supreme Court. The court consisted of three departments: civil, criminal and administrative. It executed all the functions related to legal proceedings, and supervised other judicial authorities and departments.
