February, 21st, 1943 from the Soviet military air base in Chupa two fighters P-40 and five Hurricanes flight to the operation one of the Hurricanes was piloted by the pilot of 760-th IAP sergeant Lazarev

In the same time German pilot Oberfeldwebel Rudolf Muller from 6/JG5 ' Expertenstaffel with his squad of the four of fighters Bf109G has been escorted five bombers Ju87D, and entered to the fight on his Bf109G-2 with the Soviet fighters of 760-th IAP. In action, near the area of railway station – Polyarnyi Krug, he shot down his last plane in his life, before he got the same fate- he was knock out on April, 19th 1943. Muller's plane has been hit in 8 Kriegsmarine to the east of lake Maljarvi, then catch by soviets and sent in POW camp where was killed on October, 21st 1943 when attempting to escape. The military historian Jury Rybin, has found out the information confirming the fact in archive, that in that day Muller has hit down two Soviet planes, one of which was piloted by sergeant Boris Aleksandrovich Lazarev.


Most likely after the Hurricane was hit, Lasarev having unfastened belts on his hands, tried to leave the machine falling down, but has loose time. Probably, the low height has not allowed it to make it. ' Hurricane ' has fallen in a bog. The pilot was died from the strongest kick to a control panel of the plane. When he died he was only 22 y.o
