Eternal glory to the heroes: Moroz (in the award sheet recorded as Arsenty) Aksentiy Ignatievich

Aksentiy Ignatyevich Moroz, born in 1914, lived his whole life in our region. Ukrainian. Before the war he worked at the first (Sverdlov) state farm. Volunteer Frost fought bravely at the front from the first days of the war, for which he was awarded the Order of the Red Star, medals.

The outstanding feat Sergeant Moroz made during the regiment crossing the Dnieper. On September 23, 1943, a group of mortars came out to the crossing to deliver ammunition to single-man soldiers who had already taken up positions on the western bank of the river. The fascists opened heavy machine gun fire. Our mortars were forced to lay low. Then Sergeant Moroz and a group of brave men secretly entered the rear of the Nazis, and a sudden attack knocked out the Nazis from their positions and opened fire from a captured machine gun. The danger to crossing trays of mines has been eliminated.

Eight times Hitlerites made attempts to overturn Soviet soldiers in the Dnieper, but each time they rolled back under fire from a machine gun seized from the Nazis by Aksentiy Moroz. The next time fascist tanks went to the regiment, the Frost department commander was not confused: having replaced the dead armored trooper on the battlefield, he set fire to the enemy tank with two shots from an anti-tank rifle.

Thanks to the ingenious actions of the commander of the Frost mortars, the bridgehead on the right bank of the Dnieper was extended. The Soviet troops went on a further offensive.

The Motherland highly appreciated the heroic deed of our countryman.

By the Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR on October 26, 1943, Aksentiy I. Moroz was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union.

Aksentiy Ignatyevich Moroz died May 29, 1962. Buried in the city of Donetsk.
