Gun layer of 76mm cannon, 429 rifle regiment, 52 rifle “Şumla” Red Banner division.
Drafted in May 1944 after living on the occupied territory (in Odessa region, just like my grand-dad).

On 24 March 1945, in an attack on the village Mocsa (Komárom district, Hungary), he risked his life under intensive enemy artillery fire. He boldly rolled out his gun to a forward open sights position and destroyed an enemy APC and a machine-gun position, which enabled advance o our troops and capture of the village Mocsa.
He deserves to be bestowed with order “RED STAR”.
