Za Rodinu is a non-political historical group based in Brisbane that re-enacts the WWII Soviet Red Army – specifically the elite Razvedchik (scout) units which often had snipers and other specialists attached.
We chose the name “Za Rodinu!” as it symbolizes the strength and spirit that saw the Soviets – men & women – fight to the last bullet to save their motherland, USSR or as it is known today, Russia.
Our primary impressions will be focussing on the elite Scout/Sniper units – and for this reason we need members who are prepared to keep fit, get down and dirty and dedicated to being hardcore re-enactors!
Za Rodinu! is necessarily VERY strict on authenticity – because we believe that the Soviet soldiers deserve no less than our very best efforts and respect in portraying them.
In our membership, we seek serious re-enactors and living historians with a genuine interest in the period and culture.
