Under a hailstorm of enemy fire he reconnoitered a crossing for the tanks across a water barrier and regulated the tank crossing across the river.

On June 25, 1944, near the village of Komara, comrade Vinogradov and a group of scouts blew up the crossing across the Western Dvina River under heavy enemy artillery and machine-gun fire, not permitting the enemy to cross the river.

During this battle comrade Vinogradov died the death of heroes. During the fighting between June 23 and 25, under the leadership of comrade Vinogradov approximately 75 soldiers and officers were taken prisoner, while 45 horses, 15 vehicles, 4 motorcycles, and 7 machine guns were captured. With his personal weapon Vinogradov himself killed 8 Hitlerites.
