People playing World War 2 in Russia 1

Role playing is hobby for some young and not so young men and women in Russia too.

The storylines are different, amongst most popular are World War 2 and the War with France of 1812.

This time the photos from the WW2 simulation. Was taking place in Ekaterinburg city, and that’s not something about shooting the movie – just a pure fun of dedicated people.

    King of First

    • Bruce Willis says:

      Congratulations on being king of something so err, insignificant..

      • scot says:

        What do you mean – insignificant? I had three (yes, THREE) Firsts in a row!

        Yet you have never been in a good film! except maybe the Tarantino one… but someone else would have done it better.

        • Bruce Willis says:

          Fair comment

          • Miss India says:

            OMG look at them if that was Russian Soldiers then I’m not surprised at all that they were killed in Millions by german soldiers. Look at them they look so unhealthy, starved and undisciplined. I’m deeply saddenned :(

            • SSSR says:

              I thought someone was coping Miss India,that is if this is the real Miss India.She would never post nice comments.She is addicted to posting the rudest things she could think of on every single page.Lets just ignore her and she will go away!

        • Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says:

          Dear scotty,

          I disagree about the films. The Die Hard movies were good (they remind me of myself!)

          Wishing you successful cinematic review,
          M. Ahmadinejad, who could have been a movie star if not for obligations of jihad.

          • scot says:

            Dear Mahmoud,

            Wel, it is a shame that the jihad has stopped you from persuing a career in the movies. You certainly have the looks and charisma!

            yours artistically

    • Miss India says:

      OMG Russian men are so HANDSOME, Russian men are the most handsome in the world!:)

  2. Russian_NYC says:

    VERY IMPRESSIVE! Especially the actual machine gun fire, the tanks and of course the amazing PP-SH gun =) Excellent work, excellent photos!

    On the other hand – if the reenaction was realistic, it’d be like 10000000000000000 russians against 10 germans (with germans winning) The only reason russkie tuzemci won – was:
    (1) winter
    (2) hitler’s mistakes

    On the russian part, ww2 was “won” by General Winter
    =)

    • altima says:

      this is not one reason – there are two of them. and there are at least two other reasons:

      1. the “super Aryan race” got fleas and colds and proved their being just people and nothing more.
      2. nazi ideology proved to be weak and I’d say weltfremd. nazis showed disrespect to the peoples of the invaded lands and so they got disrespected themselves.

      I think these are the most important reasons but not the weather. if you are a super-nation you must be capable of coping with bad weather.

      • Walter says:

        You must realize that virtually the entire world ganged up on Germany (for good reason, but nonetheless). Had Russia been forced to fight Germany, America, the British Empire, and the French Empire, all at the same time, it may not have ended too well for them either… even if they had been allied with Japan and Italy. Americans alone outnumber Russians by a margin of nearly 2-1 (Russians, not Soviets), to give you an idea of their numbers, and throughout the entire German invasion, the Soviets were dependent on Allied supplies being shipped in thru Murmansk and Arkhangelsk, while they were scrambling to relocate their industries to the Far East. In the battle of Kursk for example, the Soviets were armed with thousands of Mustangs, and Spitfires from Anglo-America… plus they had stockpiles of Allied ammo, guns, artillery, etc… at their disposal, on top of what their eastern factories were beginning to produce. Had Germany been armed with thousands of Allied planes, guns, and soldiers, and had access to Allied oil and steel, they would’ve been one tough nut to crack… and that is difficult to debate.

        Also consider the possibility of the Russians fighting a two-front war, without the help of the USA… Had Japan invaded Sakhalin and Kamchatka, rather than attacking Pearl Harbor, they would’ve had to do exactly that. If the Japanese had invaded during the height of the Battle of Stalingrad in particular, the Russians would’ve had to keep all their eastern armies in the east to fight the Japanese, rather than transporting them west to face Germany. Had Germany punched thru the Caucuses, and kicked open the door to the Middle-East, both Germany’s and Japan’s thirst for oil would’ve been quenched and Russia would’ve been in a lot of trouble. The hubris of the Axis was simply stunning. The Japanese essentially believed Russia was all but finished, and signed a non-aggression pact with them in order to protect their flank so they could open up an entirely new front against America. Their shortsightedness was incredible, and they ended up making a suicidal mistake that is better defined as a “turning point in world history”.

      did I say russians were not heroic in my post?
      shhhh! now, sleep, cretin

    • Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says:

      Dear DV,

      You seem to be a very angry person, much like a little dog who remains inside the home all day, sitting in the window barking at passersby.

      Wishing you a peaceful spirit,
      M. Ahmadinejad

      • cj: Oregonian says:

        You are such a caring & thoughtful individual…

        • Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says:

          Dear Oregonian,

          Thank you. It is the nature of a Persian. We are cunning ruthless, and vicious like a wild hedgehog in battle, but loving and compassionate when confronted by hurting people who may be scarred by neglect, betrayal, inability to achieve sexual satisfaction, or parents who repeatedly dressed them in opposite-gender clothing during childhood and adolescence.

          Yours in compassionate conflict,
          M. Ahmadinejad

          • Robikon_44 says:

            а русские… а чё русские? опять накрутили кому то и курят задумчиво в сторонке, нас это не касается

          • Overlord says:

            If all Persians can muster is vicious like a hedgehog then I guess having the Persians be the middle easts whipping boys is Allahs will.By the way why are you so interested in “helping” young hurting cross dressing people who need help with sexual satisfaction?..Are you going to embrace them in Islam and teach them the true meaning of being GAY? Sounds like you are at the very least a sexual predator or a pedophile of some kind…oh wait you are a Persian that explains everthing.

    • jdshfkjhsdkhf says:

      suchka ti. pshel von.

    • Lex says:

      yes, you are right, the reason the Germans lost is because Hitler made a mistake, and that is getting into a fight with Russia….

    • Blazy Bone says:

      umm, the germans were better equiped untill the t-34s came out, after that the war was on russia’s side.

    Also, the osobisti’s blue hats and collars look strangely beautiful.

    btw, osobisty = mraz’. Kak mozhno samomu sebe otchet delat’ kogda takuiu “rabotu” delaesh’? Kazhdiy ubludok kotoriy bil osobistom zasluzhivaet bit’ utoplenim v govne.
    =) merry christmas.

  4. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says:

    Wonderful photos! I love my Russian friends, but in this scenario I would have to be a German soldier, so that I could sneak up on the two female Russian soldiers in photo # 3 and show them how I “dominate the battlefield of love.”

    Wishing you success on the battlefield,
    M. Ahmadinejad

    • anon says:

      Don’t hit those, you will get AIDS.

    • angella says:

      Mahmoud

      you crack me right up, do you have any goats? I think I need to reconsider your request and grant you entry into Australia, where you can ‘plough my fields’

      • Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says:

        Dearest Angella,

        Thank you for reconsidering my request to enter Australia, as my urge to do some planting “down under” is about to overwhelm me.

        No, I do not have any goats, but my efforts to help Bilosh describe the life of a goat herder have made me feel like I have goats in my brain.

        I prefer sheep, as they are more gentle and compliant. Plus, goats have a tendency to unexpectedly ram their heads into sensitive areas, especially male genitalia, which may lead to intense, excruciating, unrelenting pain, and may cause long-term harm to a man’s ability to work, exercise, or properly sow the seeds of international love. And that, after jihad, is my greatest purpose in life.

        Yours in unrestricted travel visas,
        M. Ahmadinejad

        • angella says:

          oh M. Ahmadinejad

          May I say I feel so elated by your choice to ignore my crase and rude remarks made previously. My only comment to you as you seem perfect would be

          1/ do you have any gum boots (a legacy of travel to new Zealand perhaps).

          2/ have any of your relatives been interned in Christmas island, or Guantanamo bay?

          3/ do you have any camels or knowledge of said beast.

          4/ would you swear on your grandmothers life that the only jihad you partake in be a jihad of love in the matrimonial chambers with your infidel?

          5/ could you perhaps do some role play and dress up as a Nazi, a Latvian police man or a gimp?

    • Rob says:

      Ha! Dream on matey! – I know those girls and they’d kick you in the yaitsi.

  5. Russian_NYC says:

    OK, I guess I can actually answer you, smelly troll.

    Roughly 80% of wermacht was destroyed on the eastern front. I know that.
    However, that does not change the fact that Sovdepovskaya armia threw soldiers around like dirt. A soldat was cheaper than a round of ammo for the russian “army”. Germans fought with ammunition, Sovok fought with bodies.

    So, when Germans entered Sovok, their infantry was around 2 million. How many (or should I say ‘how much’?) of Russian infantry were killed during ’41?

    • zoro says:

      so many trolls in here…

      • cj: Oregonian says:

        so warm and snuggly

        I’m so happy because there’s a little eye candy for us girl trolls today. I love guys in uniform. And you have to admit there are a few nice ones included here.

      …историей WW2 (хороший сайт http://www.iremember.ru)…

    • Russian_NYC says:

      СОВОК с солдатами обращался как с туловищами, которые надо гнать под угрозой смерти.

      1 винтовка на 10 человек (в воспоминаниях ветеранов неоднократно этот факт повторяется: http://www.iremember.ru)

      Поэтому Немчина и смотрела на них как на местных туземцев.
      Потери союза были больше чем всех других стран вместе взятых – чем это обьяснить?

      • Foolishness must be punished says:

        Геноцидом, развёрнутым немцами на оккупированных территориях. Большая часть потерь пришлась на гражданское население. Дебилов и тех, кому фимоз ударил в голову отсылаю к “Зелёной папочке” и “Замечаниям и предложениям “Восточного министерства” по генеральному плану “Ост”.

        Историей WW2 оно интересуется…матчасть учи сначала.

    Well.. I’m pretty sure that those fellas won’t be happily reenacting the fates of the 163rd and 44th divisions in the winter ’39-40

  7. neutral says:

    what kind of tanks are these?
    the german uniforms are nicer, but I think the russian ones are warmer…

  8. Col.Pickle says:

    Let the flame wars begin…

    Anyway, these pics are great, I would die to get to participate in one of these things. SO COOL!

  9. LilFox says:

    Why are reenactors on the german side always so fat? So much for the übermensch;)

  10. Miss India says:

    Some of those men are cute.I am glad it is all simulated and not real.

  11. Jason says:

    Ekaterinburg has the coolest most agressive Lenin monument in all of russia.It is above the dams spillway in the middle of the city.Also my brother in law Sasha could be in the photos somewhere.

  12. beast says:

    hahaha…. i saw on a show that something like 50-70% of germans living today have russian DNA in them..in germany. this is because mighty russian army raped vast percentage of german women in ww2 after russia pushed germans back and invaded germany. hahaaha…so much for the super ‘superior aryan’ race now dilluted with the ‘subhuman’ slavic blood. we raped all your women..russia basically OWNS germany now. hahaha pathetic inferior germans.

    • angella says:

      I wouldn’t be proud of the fact that the Russian army is a bunch of pack rapists. Latvia, Poland, Lithuania,every where you went your reputation proceeded you.

      I am also going to laugh at you about the dna comment, isn’t the reason that Russians went from blond to black hair the invasion of the Mongol tribes of Asia?

      The pack rapes of the Russian army are why the atomic bomb was dropped on Japan. It was to keep Russian away from Asia and to stop you pack raping everything in your sight.

  13. Russian_NYC says:

    “WELL EQUIPPED” <- and you sir, are an asshead.

    f&ck all communists, good many died should have been more.

    German heroes never forgotten.

  15. Kirov says:

    In end of 1943 they were well equipped. Not so much earlier, but still they had a respectable amount of clothes, grenades, ammunition.

  16. Starshii says:

    I just wonder. In these games do germans or finns ever win any battles?

  17. inconvinient truth says:

    I don’t see any NKWD “heros” “encouraging” soviet people to fight. hahaha

    • good one says:

      Yes, it’s amazing what a shot to the head of your comrade will do to “encourage” you to charge into the enemy, where at least you have a chance. :)

      Was Kruschev NKVD, or a political officer, during this war? Anyone know?

  18. Russian_NYC says:

    An awesome website about this: http://www.iremember.ru
    Alas, mostly for russian-speakers only.

  19. El_Greco says:

    Awesome i want to take part in one reenachment like that some day

  20. w says:

    wow this is so gay. Notice how all they wait for all WW2 veterens to die before they began this craze? Our grandfathers would be rolling in their graves if they could see these grown men playing like this.

    • Rob says:

      There are reconstructions of the Russki Grazhdanski Voina as well.

    • Rob says:

      Fair enough – that’s your opinion. Your written English is terrible – and that’s mine.

      We do talks and lectures for local schools in Russia as well as charitiable work for the veterans as well, and on the whole the response from VOV veterans is extremely positive, with many of them attending reconstructions.

  21. You said WWII and the Napoleonic wars. How come no role playing of the civil war — reds vs whites?

  22. Russian_NYC says:

    These people are very much like Borat =)

    The reason russians HATE Borat so much is because they understand that the movie makes fun of russians, NOT Kazakhstan.
    =)

    a sexy time! is a nice!

  23. BORAT says:

    My name BORAT, I Russian soldier!

    I like show ladies sexy-time! WAWA-WEeeEWA! You want dance Miss Michigan? I like make romance inside you! YAG-SHIMASH!

    Even the Germans in Russia look Russian…bahaha…

  25. OPERATOR says:

    Lol at some of the fat German soldiers. They would never have made it into the real SS.

  26. Ash says:

    These reenactors are awesome; I love the uniforms and weapons! Also the reenactments here don’t have awesome tanks, so I’m jealous…

  27. WW2 officer says:

    Well,look its obvious that the first Russian winter(just like Napoleons Grande Armee)played a huge part in the defeat of Nazi Germany.The Germans were in Moscow(some suburbs) when it started and some Germans even saw the Kremlin and its true that the Soviets were better equipped for the harsh winter,so their clothes were warmer and they had their furry hats or tuque things.Germans had no such things and it wasnt because they were dumb or bad at planning invasions that they didnt have early winter equipment(later they realized their errors and made their own white camouflaged equipment).It is because Hitler and his staff thought they could defeat Russia before winter using Blitzkrieg(like France)If it werent for the winter that froze to death many germans and some Soviets, the Germans would surely of conquered Moscow completely and there would have been no Stalingrad and Leningrad would be cut off with no road of life and Soviet Russia would capitulate or continue fighting in the Urals where they would face a fate worse maybe than Berlin 45.It is true that the russians had not many guns(depends could range from 7 for 10 or 2 for 10)and would take some from the fallen.Russian high command(STAVKA etc) thought russian soldiers so cheap for there were many and considered a grenade worth more than a ruski soldier.To get more men some russian soldiers raided at night in little groups captured villages occupied by germans and took formerly soviet people without their will (including women)to be drafted in the Soviet army without any or proper training or equipment and they would almost always send them first to attack Axis lines as cannon fodder.Few survived.Whenever there was a gap in german lines (sometimes made by Soviet cannon fodder) russians would pour troops in and stuff even after super severe casualties to overwhelm the position (like Kursk).Anyways im tired of writing but all of this is true and can be easily verified inn WW2 books and magaines.

  28. WW2 officer says:

    PP-Sh, T-34s and Katyushas do not win battles by themselves.It is the foolhardy but brave russian soldiers who wielded the PP-SH 41 among others that died in masses that contributed the most to victory in battles and the war.So much for common sense. Regarding the russian winter,have you ever heard or even read a work of alternate history? Oh yeah, and it’s one rifle for three, that’s if they’re working.

  32. WW2 officer says:

    PP-SH,katyushas and T-34s do not win wars or battles by themselves.It is the russian infantry that contributed the most to the final victory.And your notion that the first russian winter was not important as the 3 other reasons you name is completely false for the reasons above…either way russian losses were a lot more than german ones in winter offensives of theirs so it proves that the winter of 41 was very important for the survival of Soviet Russia.

    I am a ww2 German reenactor but here in Arkansas the hobby is small change compared to what I see in the Ekatarina reenactment. I also do British Airborne, Red Army , US Army, and even American Civil War. the Russian reenactors are amazing.They are numerous and from all ages and sexes , and there are authenticity issues that far exceeds what we do here. At least in world war two reenactment. Apparently the Russians are much better than the USA, I am envious. I have a Jeep but the vehicles I see in this set of pictures is amazing. I am old and when I do red Army, I do a Politruk. I am still working on getting an appropriate hat, a belt buckle and the medals I think a politruk would wear, DOM and DOS. best wishes to you – Allen
