How to Rewind Kiev 4A Type 3A

I came across a Kiev 4A Type 3a camera but I am at a loss of how to release the film to rewind it into the canister. On the bottom plate there is no rewind button. The bottom plate is professionally inscribed in Russian with a date of 23 01 81.

One of the bottom opening keys is the rewind, the one with the orange dot on the bottom cover metal. Just turn that key to the dot and you can rewind the film.

BTW, I know it is practical but I always hated the way the Kiev 4M and Kiev 4AM had its rewind clutch operated with that latch key.
