Jay says set the dial clockwise for the simple clones, the latch mechanism can indeed be stressed (if not damaged) unless you counter hold the knob.
So the simplest thing to do is wind on the empty camera, set to -2, load film wind on to zero fire and put the camera away for the shoot session.
I counterhold the knob, unwound, so I'd not have told you, about the damage hazard..
For the last 13 months I've only used a Kiev (or Contax), apart from folders, Fed's, Zorki's, M2, etc.,... and a digital to record dismantle sequences...
