Detailled information about KBF-losses are generally NOT found in the Defence Ministry Archive (TsAMO) in Podolski, but in the Navy Archive (TsAVMF) in Gatchina - as the Navy formed a separate Peoples Commissariat during WW II, and was formally NOT subordinated to the Defence Ministry!
The mentioned aviator-POWs Jn.Lt. Nikolai Borisov and Red army Soldier Rem Khuzainov were members of the same Pe-2 crew (pilot and gunner; the navigator Sergei Kuznetsov was KIA. Pe-2 c/n was 9/275, unit 34 GBAP) which was shot down at Hiitola 18 June 1944 (note date!). Khuzainov was captured next day (19 June 1944).
