Dramatic stuff !

Skimmed through and looked at one episode of combat. Presumably featuring Austro Hungarian foes ?

Thanks for the link.

Yes: Russians vs AH troops. Simply by using modern cinematic technologies (digital, "roving cameras", etc...) and a time lapse from the 1989 - 1991 dissolution of the USSR (quarter of century) plus WWI centenary motivations this series almost certainly motivated if not assisted as well by modern day Russian re-enactors along with the current "Russian nationalism" goes a fair way in compensating for the generational absences of Russian cinematic cultural recognition of this conflict and its consequences.
