  • Why subtitle the RKKA "The Russian Army"?

    I don't come on this forum very often. I noticed this sub forum is called RKKA (The Russian Army) in World War II.

    When I look up the definition / translation of RKKA get " The Red Army of of Workers and Peasants ".

    I know that Russian and USSR are often used interchangeably by some. For this era I always try to use Soviet or USSR . From what I understand during World War II the Russians were about 50% of the population of the USSR and the other ethnic groups about 50%.
