Re: Soviet Union Military Records #russia


These sites were created by Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, long after dissolution of the Soviet Union.
I recommend using as a primary site, while also checking the 2 you mention.  It brings in information from more sources.  For example, there is only one result for my ggfather in OBD, but 3 results in Pamyat Naroda. is a site that allows submission of photos and creation of a profile with the biography and links to the documents at

Ministry of Defense also created a WWI site, where among various documents you can locate information about wounded, missing, pow, killed, and awarded soldiers.

If you navigate to any of these sites, there are links to all sites mentioned in this thread at the bottom of the page.
