Kachaldar, Nakhichevansk A.O. [Armenia] Because of the skillful actions of the crew of Captain Akifiev, A. A., the helicopter was able to land in poor weather conditions on unfamiliar and unmarked place. Capt. Akifiev displayed high piloting skills, valor and courage, and was able to land the group of soldiers which resulted in the capture of the armed fighters.

During his time of service, Captain Akifiev, A. A., displayed himself to be a disciplined, literate and dependable officer. He is a pilot 3rd class. He has not had any accidents. He constantly works to raise this theoretical level. He has earned the respect of his friends and commanders.

He was discussed at a meeting of the constantly acting evaluation committee, report N. 18 on 20 Sept. 1990.

CONCLUSION: For courage and valor displayed during military duties in conditions with a risk of life, he deserves to be awarded the Order of the Red Star.
