Panzerjager Brigade Russland

In February 1945 the striking anti-tank brigade "Russia" was formed from the ROA soldiers and officers. 1,200 persons served in it under the command of Colonel Galkin. The brigade was subordinated to anti-tank division "Vistula" and fought hard on the river Oder. They called it "fire brigade" because it fought on the most dangerous front zones. In the beginning of April the brigade together with 1604th (former 714th Danish) regiment was included in ROA 1st division.
