Russian soldier of the Russian Corps in Serbia. The Russian Corps was composed of anti-communist Russian emigres, who sought refuge in Yugoslavia after the defeat of the White Russians by the Bolsheviks. The Russian Corps fought with the Germans against Tito's partisans and was highly regarded by German commanders. After the war, the Russian Corps surrendered to the British and its members were spared forced repatriation to the USSR, where they would been certainly executed.

1917: Russian emigres at the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Paris after the revolution. By 1917, Russia was war-weary. Military disasters such as the Battle of Tannenberg, with its 250,000 losses, had wiped out the Russian Second Army. Besides mutiny and desertion in the military, severe food shortages at home led to strikes in the factories and rioting on the streets of St Petersburg. This was the spark for the February Revolution; Tsar Nicholas II abdicated in the aftermath.

Officers of a Russian emigre unit of the German army formed in Yugoslavia. Most of these Russians sought refuge in Yugoslavia after the Bolshevik Revolution. During WW2, the unit reached 17,000 and fought nonstop in anti-partisan operations. When defeat came, the Russians fought the rear guard action to allow the German forces to evacuate Belgrade largely unscathed. The unit wore German uniforms with Tsarist insignia.
