Skopje, Hello! I've provided links to good peony care. When planting in summer, it is necessary to provide some shade to new transplants. Something like a row cover cloth will work or even a piece of cardboard that is strategically staked in place. If you think the coral sunset is sunburned, and not diseased, then I would keep leaves attached. If they are no longer green, remove them as they provide no photosynthesis. Leaf diseases are a problem with every growing operation so watch closely and promptly remove any leaves that seem affected/infected. The second link is for diseases to which peony is prone. Good luck!
