Brief, concrete description of his feat of arms:
“He took active part in all the ships combat missions since the first days of the Patriotic war. When the ship struck a mine, he selflessly fought for the vessels and equipment survivability. With his courageous and proactive effort at the main damage area, he quickly restored the electrical lighting and the electrical water pumps functions.
When an enemy bomb hit the vessel and ignited fire, he exhibited exceptional bravery. Risking his life, he fought the fire until it was finally put out. In other combat missions, he excellently operated and maintained functions at his combat station. During ship maintenance works, his exceptionally skilful, proactive, and persistent effort assured completion of tasks by 200%-300% over the planned goals, while maintaining excellent quality of repairs.”
