In the military commissariat of the Republic of Mordovia, a ceremonial transfer of a certificate to the Order of the Patriotic War of the 1st degree to the daughter of the Red Army soldier Ibragim Khalilovich Bogdanov who died heroically in battle took place.

The presentation was carried out as part of a personal reception of citizens by the commander of the Central Military District, Colonel-General Alexander Lapin, via video communication.

For his courage, courage and skillful use of heavy machine gun fire, for his endurance in battle while repelling enemy counterattacks, Bogdanov was posthumously nominated for the Order of the Patriotic War of the 1st Degree. But the award was never awarded. Historical justice was restored 77 years later by the military commissariat of the republic. The certificate was handed over to Bakhtiyarova’s daughter Manira Ibragimovna.

The award sheet reads: “Bogdanov Ibrahim Halimovich showed himself in battles at an altitude of 662. While in defense, German soldiers were pressing on his heavy machine gun. Gunner Comrade Bogdanov let the attackers close at close range and shot them point-blank. After repelling this attack, Comrade Bogdanov turned fire on the advancing enemy on the left flank. Fighting off attack after attack, Comrade Bogdanov destroyed and scattered the advancing Hitlerites. Comrade Bogdanov was wounded, up to 35 Nazi soldiers and officers were lying in front of the front of the heavy machine gun shelling. Wounded, seeing a group of Germans bypassing his firing point, Comrade Bogdanov threw grenades at them. In this unequal battle, showing courage and heroism, Comrade Bogdanov, risking his own life, attacked the enemy and was killed in hand-to-hand combat. Comrade Bogdanov gave his life with honor for the victory over the enemy. “

Red Army soldier Bogdanov was killed in an unequal battle on 09/13/1944 on the 1st Ukrainian Front. The military commissar of the Republic of Mordovia said that a detachment of the Yelnikovsky district of the Republic of Mordovia, where the hero was born, will be named after the glorious warrior who died for the Fatherland.
