Short Description of his feat of arms or achievements:

“During the fighting for the town of Sypnevo-Folvark the enemy put up stiff resistance. Firing his machine guns and artillery pieces over open sights, the enemy prevented our infantry from pushing forward. In order to destroy the firing positions Lieutenant Moiseyenko was given orders to proceed to fire over open sights. Lieutenant Moiseyenko pushed two guns a distance of 150 meters, through the ranks of our infantry, and opened fire. It took two shells to destroy an enemy heavy machine gun. The enemy brought down vicious mortar and artillery fire onto Lieutenant Moiseyenko’s guns and the entire crew of the second gun was taken out of action. Risking his life, Lieutenant Moiseyenko, surrounded by exploding mortar and artillery shells, fearlessly took up position behind the panoramic sight and opened fire at an enemy gun. After five shells he had destroyed it. Thereupon he suppressed a heavy machine gun, which completely enabled our infantry to advance unimpeded, along with enabling the capture of the village of Sypnevo-Folvark.

For his exceptional bravery and courage and for successfully destroying enemy firing positions, he deserves the Order of the Red Banner.
