In 69 years a front-line soldier from Gorki district was awarded with the Order Red Star. Gorki District Executive Committee awarded an eighty-year old veteran of the Great Patriotic War Nikolai Petrovich Kravtsov with the Order Red Star.

According to Pavel Sokolov, a chief specialist of Gorki District Military Enlistment Office, N.P.Kravtsov got the order for taking part in the battle of Arkadyevka village on July, 10-12 1942. Nikolai Kravtsov, a soldier of the 32nd motorcycle squad of the 31st motorized brigade had to be a messenger, to deliver ammunition, to shoot enemies. He was not able to get the award because he was wounded and sent to hospital.

After hospital treatment Nikolai Kravtsov joined the Army again. During the war years he was awarded with the Bravery Medal, two Honour Orders. He always remembered about the Order Red Star but had no time to look for it: life was too busy. Years passed and his grandson Kirill decided to redress an injustice.
