A brief, specific statement of personal combat feat or merit:
In battles with the German invaders, Comrade Chernobrovkin repeatedly showed fearlessness and courage. He especially distinguished himself on April 25, 1944, when the enemy, after a powerful artillery preparation, launched an attack on our units. Comrade Chernobrovkin, being directly in the combat formations of the rifle companies, despite the strong fire of the enemy, skillfully organized the machine-gun fire of his company and, letting the enemy close, destroyed over 50 Romanian soldiers.
With his skillful, courageous and decisive actions, Comrade Chernobrovkin contributed to the successful repulsion of the enemy attack, as a result of which the enemy was driven back to their original positions, having suffered heavy losses in killed and wounded.
