The Budenovka hat was designed by a famous Russian painter named Viktor Vasnetsov. He based his creation off of the Kiev Rus helmet, ancient headwear worn by the legendary heroes of Russian folklore. Vasnetsov hoped soldiers would be inspired by the connection their uniforms had with these heroes of the past.
