Photo gallery 29 January 2018

These photographs were shown publicly in Russia for the first time ever at an exhibition in January in central Moscow. The exhibition celebrates 100 years since the end of the First World War, which killed 1.7 million Russian soldiers, second only to Germany. It also killed an estimated 730,000 Russian civilians and led directly to the 1917 Russian Revolution and civil war.
