And he comes, rescuing in time, covering with fire and destroying the enemy! ”

After Kononenko’s release, he was sent to the 17th separate Kryvyi Rih tank brigade named after Konstantin Pestushko, and then, together with his unit, to the area of ​​the Anti-Terrorist Operation in Donbas. The young lieutenant fought bravely, and thanks to his strong knowledge and skills he almost immediately gained authority among his subordinates and officers.
