I think you are looking for Lebed, not Lebedev logo. There was a V.A. 
Lebedev, who designed some flying boats, but the big company was Lebed - 
according to several sources including Red Stars 3. I think the Durkota book 
makes a mistake there.

The logo is something inside a small, presumably red or black circle. A 
picture of a swan perhaps?
