I found a document copy UFA and added it to the Wiki: http://ussrcameras.ru/catalog/617
The UFA is really an Universal Foto Apparat for observation and document copying

Here is a Google Translate translation of the story (ROBOT - Das Sammlerbuch, Hans Grahner):
In early April 1945, only a few weeks before the capitulation of the German Reich, a new relocation of the factory was ordered because of the advancing Eastern Front. They packed machines, cameras, camera components and lenses on railway carriages in order to send them to Ravensburg. This corner of southern Germany had been regarded by the then competent authorities of the III. Reich as a safe location for the resumption of production. Because of the length of the transport train two wagons were attached to another train and sent ahead. Only these two wagons have ever reached Swabia, the rest either remained in Großschönau, or had been overrun by advancing troops on their journey through Bohemia. Also Berning left with his family hurriedly in April 1945 Saxony and drove in the remaining car to Zussdorf, where he had already rented in 1944 as emergency quarters a small house.

A new start
The first time in Zussdorf Berning spent researching the whereabouts of the Robot-train from Großschönau in Saxony. In fact, he could trace only those two previously sent wagons, rather accidentally on a siding in Bad Schussenried. Their cargo had meanwhile landed in the ditch after looting or air raid and had to be picked up with tweezers by the family Berning in laborious detail work. The actual train with the production machines and cameras was lost.

a very interesting information.
In the just postwar years Soviet Union was busy in training and preparing high level personnel in every factory in order to be a giant camera producer. To do this they count onthe help of several German technicians.

In 1943 the Robot factory moved to Großschönau, where at the end of the war Soviet troops found the material to produce cameras in the Soviet Union. They didn't copy the Robot, they had the parts.
