On September 8, 1943, during the fighting for the Kutsiv farmstead, comrade Boyarintsev crushed a barn housing Germans. Using the tank’s tracks he killed up to 15 Germans, and when the Germans were able to set the tank on fire by throwing a grenade, he personally put out the fire and continued assailing the fascists.

On September 11, 1943, while pursuing the retreating enemy troops, comrade Boyarintsev operated ahead of the infantry and led the way for them, and with his company he destroyed 6 mortars and 8 machine guns and killed as many as 150 Germans.
