Citation for the Titel of Hero of the Soviet Union:

Brief and specific description of the personal feat or merits:

Colonel NEGODA conducted exceptionally extensive work in preparing his troops for the offensive operation on the western bank of the Oder river. In the course of two weeks, he tirelessly trained his troops and prepared them for the decisive battles. On 16 April 1945, the division broke through the strong fortified multi-layered enemy defence line near Kienitz and, having defeated the main opposing force, commenced successful advance taking over during the first days the settlements Neutrebbin, Wriezen, Werneuchen, Bernau, and engaged in ferocious fighting against the enemy on the outskirts of Berlin. The enemy was putting up fierce resistance. Risking his life every minute, colonel NEGODA was among the fighting formations and led them skilfully in battle. Thanks to his skilful leadership, the division was confidently advancing forward smashing the enemy opposition. In the fierce engagements on the approaches to Berling and in the street fight in Berlin itself, the division inflicted the following losses upon the enemy: 3135 troops killed and 3090 taken prisoner. Equipment destroyed: guns of different calibers – 110, machine-guns – 214, rifles and submachine guns – 1638, APC – 16, tanks – 15. Equipment captured: guns of different calibers – 155, machine-guns – 316, rifles and submachine guns – 4400, mortars – 61, trucks – 40, tanks – 9, steam engines – 58, rail carriages – 1430 and other.

On 30 April 1945, the first battalion of the 380th rifle regiment was the first in the rifle corps, which raised the Victory Banner over Reichstag. The enemy finding itself trapped in Berlin capitulated on 01 May 1945.

For excellently conducted military operation and personal courage, colonel NEGODA DESERVES THE TITLE “HERO OF SOVIET UNION”.


Citation for the Order of the Red Banner: 

Brief and specific description of the personal feat or merits:

Comrade NEGODA is a good seasoned combat officer. Acting as an interim Chief of Staff of 13 cavalry corps, he visited the field troops 3 times (to settlements Terelich-Kurliandsky, Vditsko, Bolshaya Eglina) to assist in leading the combat operations in difficult circumstances.

Thanks to comrade NEGODA’s personal involvement, the military order was quickly restored in 236 cavalry regiment formation after the enemy aerial strike near Terelich-Kurliandsky, quick capture of the village Vditsko was assured, and the military order was reinstated on the right flank of the 59 separate rifle brigade, which was sent for assault in the most decisive moment of the battle.

Comrade NEGODA, disregarding his own life, always swiftly advanced his units forward. In the lack of officer personnel, he assured responsive command of the units.

He deserves a state award – order “RED BANNER”.
