    The research came in recently. Thanks to Igor for all the work! The recipient was originally going to be awarded with an Order of the Red Banner but it was later changed to OPW 1st class. Awarded October 20, 1944.

    Comrade SICHENKO arrived to the 86 rifle regiment on 25 January 1944
    and was assigned to the role of a rifle company commander. In this role, comrade
    SICHENKO proved himself as a strong willed, persistent, and reliable commander.
    In the regiments combat operation on the 2 Ukrainian front, SICHENKO exhibited
    courage and bravery. In the enemy defence breakthrough operation on
    20.08.1944, comrade SICHENKO exhibited exceptional courage and commanders
    wit, which is intrinsic to a Red Army officer. The company lead by comrade
    SICHNEKO, encountered a strong fire resistance from the enemy. Then comrade
    SICHENKO skilfully deployed his and attached units on the ground. Cunningly
    manoeuvring his troops, he unleashed all might of his firepower at the enemy. In
    a decisive assault he overpowered the enemy taking their first trench line. Then
    immediately after that, he launched the a new assault and closely pursuing the
    retreating enemy rushed in and took over the village La Rus’, which was one the
    main enemy strong points covering the main road to the town Iași. In this bitter
    engagement, SICHENKO’s company eliminated up to 29 enemy troops, and 14
    took prisoner, captured 4 machine-guns, 13 rifles, 2 cannons, 1 mortar.
    For skilful command in the battle, for exhibited personnel gallantry,
    comrade SICHENKO is worthy of “RED BANNER”.
