Short, concrete description of his feat of arms or merits:

The sector through which the telephone line had to pass was subjected to heavy enemy artillery and mortar fire. Under enemy fire, Sergeant Lednyov and the soldiers of his squad, defying death, provided the units that were engaged in the fighting with communications within the established time frame. Lednyov repaired breaks that were caused in the telephone line within 5-10 minutes.

He deserves the Order of Glory, 3rd Class.
