Citation of the Order of the Red Star #132362
Brief and specific description of the personal feat or merits
“Comrade KRIVOROT A.G. proved himself as a courageous and a brave commander during the combat operations of the brigade. In the combat engagements of the 1st motorised battalion for the village DUBOVIKOVKA, senior politruk KRIVOROT inspired the enlisted men and the officers by personal example to raise into the attack under the hurricane of enemy tank, machine-gun, and submachine-gun fire. With a swift push, the men of the 1 motorised battalion were the first to take capture the village DUBROVKA destroying in the process 2 German tanks, 17 trucks, and up to battalion of Hitlerites infantry. The battalion captured the following materiel: 9 guns of different calibers, 6 mortars, 3 ammunition and equipment depots, captured 150 enemy troops. After the battalion commander fell ill and was out action, comrade KRIVOROT took over the command over the battalion and successfully led it into combat actions near the villages Krasnovka, Kalmykovka.
Comrade KRIVOROT properly organised the Communist and Komsomol organisation in the battalion and set them up for achieving the combat objectives given by the Command. He is devoted to the case of the party “LENIN-STALIN” and the Socialist Motherland.
He is worthy of ORDER “RED STAR”.”
