Captain Osipenko was recommended for the award for organizing crossing of the river.

Basically he was in charge of three groups:

First group attacked the enemy and engaged him in combat to shift attention from other two groups.

Second group was building engineering communications to cross the river.

Finannly third group was working on the enemy's minefield, deactivating the mines and preparing path for the Russian troups to attack enemy from other direction.

Hmmm...I've seen this award somewhere before. I can't place where though. Have you sent it out for authentication yet? I'm no expert on authenticity, but I'm not a fan of the red enamel (too dark and too rounded), the back of the star (appears to be a dark chemical patina?) and the screwnut plate on the back of the hanger, which appears newer than the rest of the award. Like I said, I'm no expert by any means, so if others are comfortable with it, I will be as well. Just thought I'd throw that out so our friend from Aussie-land doesn't lose on it.

Hello.

Yes I send to Alexei.M . I send him better scans. The order was transfer to screwback and back to original suspension. The suspension is not genuine.
