From website

http://www.elknet.pl/acestory/luganski/luganski.htm

Siergiey Luganski - Master of 'Taran' Attack.
Written by Dariusz Tyminski .

During the battle of Lvov, Luganski often flew on free hunting missions with the Soviet Hero
Yewgeniy Mienshutin acting as wing man. Once, they encountered a pair of Bf 109, one of them
with a bright red nose, over the front line Mienshutin soon downed the leader of the pair, while Luganski hit the
'red-nosed' wingman with a long burst from a very short distance. The enemy plane hit the ground, but did not explode. The Soviets 'investigated' the body of this
Bf 109?s pilot - it turned out to be an Italian pilot named Gibelli, credited with 50
(!? - after Luganski relation) kills.

I know only one Italian pilot, who flew with a Messer and was shot down on the eastern front, but the time/area is totally different.
This number of kills is just a fiction.
