In this battle, the brave platoon suffered heavy casualties but seven enemy tanks were destroyed. Their courage was stronger than the 60-ton armored tanks . Piotr Shpetnoy was awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union posthumously. In 1981, on the site of his bravery a commemorative plaque and bust of the hero was installed
