    Short, concrete description of his combat feat or merits:

    During the period he has been serving as the assistant regimental commander for supplies, he reorganized the regiment’s everyday proceedings within a short period of time. Without considering his personal time and leisure, he tirelessly looks after the supply of allowances and he sees that the men are fed. During the period that comrade Zhivotchenko has been serving in the regiment, the food in the mess hall has improved substantially because of the skillful use of food products and the proper placement of personnel. He considerately responds to the demands of the men and as a result, the men of the regiment are healthy, vigorous, and capable of carrying out any assigned task.

    He pays a great deal of attention to overseeing the duties of the subordinated units. During the Patriotic War he repeatedly participated in the fighting with the German occupants near Korytno and Uman on the Southern Front.

    For skillfully leading his units in supplying the regiment with all types of allowances, as a result of which the regiment has not had a single irregularity in provisioning, he deserves to be awarded the Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd Class.
