Translation of the citation to the Order of the Patriotic War:

He valiantly confronted enemy infiltrators within the Red Army’s ranks, actively engaging in battles alongside the 17th Mountain Battalion in Goslavl, Krichev, and Chausy during the months of September and October. This distinguished individual is PASHCHENKO, an officer serving with the 1st Rifle Battalion of the 669th Regiment, characterized by discipline, courage, and resolute leadership. During 1943, he expertly managed the security service, resulting in the successful apprehension and exposure of several German spies and their collaborators.

In the heat of battle during March 1944 Comrade PASHCHENKO captured two German spies. Furthermore, during the initial month of 1944, near the town of Talk(?), PASHCHENKO orchestrated the apprehension of a spy-radist. Throughout his service in the battalion, he ensured an unblemished record, free from any incidents of insubordination, desertion, or self-serving actions of the troops. Through his diligent and unwavering efforts, Comrade PASHCHENKO  consistently contributed to the successful execution of combat missions within the serviced unit.

He is recommended for the government award, the Order of the Red Star.
