Braiko Petr (born September 9, 1919) is a Soviet soldier during the Second World War and gained the status of Hero of the Soviet Union.
He took part in seven raids by the guerrilla brigade of Sydir Kovpak. Though he did not achieve his dream of a career as a military pilot, which haunted him from childhood, he graduated from the Moscow Border Communication College. He entered action on June 22, 1941 as a Soviet border guard on the border with Romania and witnessed the tragic encirclement and routing of Soviet forces near Kiev. He would come to spend years deep behind enemy lines where he took guidance from great Soviet guerrilla leaders in Ukraine including Sydir Kovpak, Semyon Vasilyevich Rudnev and Pyotr Petrovich Vershigora.
