He is disciplined, demanding towards himself and the subordinates, and commands great respect among the personnel.

From the very first day of the company combat engagement, Sr. Sergeant TKACHENKO has been showing examples of courage, which assured, that his unit always achieves its supply missions ahead of the target time and in any combat setting, delivering ammunition and other supplies to the firing positions.

Comrade TKACHENKO’s platoon has never had any road incidents or vehicle failures, despite harsh terrain, mud, night operations, enemy aerial and artillery bombardments.

In his spare time, Sr. Sergeant TKACHENKO assists the mechanics, which greatly reduces vehicle idle time.

Practically all the men in TKACHENKO’s platoon have been recommended for an award, and 50% of them have been decorated.

Sr. Sergeant TKACHENKO deserves state award order “RED STAR”. ”
