of us remember that there was a war between Russia and Japan in 1904-1905, and
that Russia was defeated in that war. The fact that in WW I Russia and Japan
have been allies, not enemies, is not so widely known.
here is another evidence of military supplies from Japan to Russian army. The top
line on the field telephone label says that the supplier of Tel 22 was
"Okura & Co." located in Tokyo, Japan.
is quite strange though, that schematic diagram of our Tel 22 is in
English, not in Russian language...
