There should be three screws around the edge of the winder knob. Make sure they're all there and they're all snug (they don't need to be very tight but they should not be loose). They're quite large screw heads, not hard to see.
On Kievs, the rewind-release doesn't disconnect the cocking mechanism (unlike on FED and Zorki) so that is almost certainly not the problem.
Zorki: 1e (x2), 2C, 3M, 4, 4K, 5, 6
FED: NKVD, 1g, 2e, 3a, 3b, 4L (x2), 5B, 5C
Kiev 4, 4A
Yashica Minister III
Zenith C, Zenit C, Zenit E
Minolta XG M, Z1
