Colonel Musyenkov,' who was reported previously, probably be- 25X1 longs to the fighter regiment in Brandenburg or the assigned OATB. 2. claw. The present report confirms the previous asstption that 25X1 Brandenburg-Br iest airfield is being vacated by the fighter regiment pr?e- viously stationed there. 11`rom the shipments which arrived during the reported period it is inferred that another air regiment is to be stationed at the field. According to available information, five trains are required for the tt-ansfer of a fighter or ground attack regiment including the ground unit. 25X1 it is believed 25X1 that the fighter regiment from Brandenburg Briest is being transferred to Jueterbog fates Leger. F- 25X1 the regiment has been observed in the area of Jueterbog Altos Leger. 25X1 The regiment which has been observed arriving at Branderbs ?g--Briest airfield probably is the ground attack regiment from Doeheritz air field, which, on 30 May,. was no longer occupied 'by aircraft. It is believed that the air unit of the regiment actually left Doeberits airfield, on 30 May because no )11l0s were observed at Briesat airfield on 29 May, which was the last data of ob- servation. It is possible that the transfer of the fighter regiment is co nect- ed with the negotiations on an East-West air corridor which would include BrandenburgBriest airfield.
