The head of communications of the artillery brigade, Major Pyotr Tochilkin, together with his subordinates, despite the incessant fire from the Ukrainian radicals, advanced to the damaged parts of equipment and communication lines in order to restore them. Thanks to their actions, broken communication lines and damaged equipment were promptly restored — stable control of the brigade in battle was ensured, and the attack of the nationalists was repelled.
The commander of a tank platoon, Lieutenant Oleksandr Byalik, discovered an armed formation of Ukrainian nationalists. The platoon of Lieutenant Bialik was one of the first to engage the militants — Alexander continued to fire at the enemy from an immobilized tank that caught fire due to an enemy mine. The lieutenant with his crew destroyed 3 nationalist positions.
