Short and concrete exposition of feat of arms and services
During the battles of the brigade Comrade Buznitsky showed himself as a brave and courageous combat engineer. On the 5th of March 1944 Comrade Buznitskiy received a combat mission to lift the enemy mine field and to make a minefield-lane. Comrade Buznitsky personally picked up 304 enemy mines in 4 hours. Thus made a minefield-lane for the Soviet tanks and they rushed headlong into the fight.
When the tanks were moving forward Comrade Buznitsky was sitting on a tank as a sapper-trooper. Way ahead he noticed an enemy dug-out shelter. Despite sharp mortar and artillery fire Comrade Buznitsky got off the tank and broke into the dug-out shelter and killed 2 Germans.

Sergeant Buznitsky V.P. deserves the Government award “The Order of the Red Star”.
