Short Description of his feat of arms or achievements:


"During a massive departure of the aviation group 19 FW-190 on February 21, 1945 near the city Chersk, reflecting the attack of 4 enemy aircrafts diving at the battery, Private Devyatkin died at his military post.
Neither the fragments of the bombs that fell 5 - 10 meters from the gun, nor the intense machine-gun fire did not force Private Devyatkin to leave his combat post. Combining excellent knowledge of his military affairs with military discipline, Private Devyatkin showed examples of courage and bravery in all previous battles.
January 12, 1945 near the village of Osinovka, while diving bombers of the Yu-87 dropped the bombs on the firing position trying to suppress the fire of the battery, private Devyatkin continued to carry out his duties. The gun crew, which included Private Devyatkin, passed the difficult test with honour, as a result of which one plane was shot down and the rest were scattered. On account of the gun crew of Private Devyatkin, there are 5 shot down enemy aircrafts.
Private Devyatkin was also rewarded with Medal of Honor".
