JG 52 versus Soviet VVC May 20,44

On May 20, 1944 during the famous battle of Targul Frumos
various assets of Tolbukin's 3rd Ukrainian Front were retreating back
towards East of Dubosari pressured by German armours ,
Panzer Grenadier Div.Grossdeutschland and 3rd SS Totenkopf
Division along with ground troops.

Covering the German offensive involved assets of JG52, II,/SG2
III./SG2 . Covering the Soviet retreat involved assets from 267 IAP
178 GvIAP, 113 GvIAP, 117 GvIAP 5 GvIAP, 438 GvIAP, 897 GvIAP
866 GvIAP and 153 GvIAP acting at various times during the day.

During the air clashes between the Soviets and Luftwaffe , the
JG52 claimed 16 Soviet fighters and 2 Boston bombers, the Soviets
claimed 3 ME-109 , 5 FW-190 and 3 JU-87.

According JG52 documents not even one fighter was lost
and according SG 2 only 1 JU-87 but due AA activity .

The Soviets reported the loss of 9 fighters only and no Boston
bombers at all .

Questions : Was there too a Romanian air asset
involved and if yes what losses they published ,were there
other Luftwaffe losses elsewhere published which I may not
be aware of ?
