I'm sorry, my Russian is pretty poor and I think the link is broken. Can anyone provide me with the right link to the torrent by private message?

Thanks in advance!

There is no torrent. Go to the website, and you can find it yourself, if you try.
Not wanting to sound mean, but some things don't have to be chewed up ;-)

For those who subscribed on this topic.
German Docs in Russia were updated recently. A lot of files from new signature 12480 (Red Army field intel) were added.

note that I contacted the German "admin/tech guy" there, he noted they want to add pdf downloads and they should be up in a few months.

Excellent, all the more since a lot of this series is already circulating. It was kind of absurd that everyone had a private copy while the responsibles for the web site refrained from adding the material.

You will see many items also available in the NARA rolls ; then a few (ca. 20%) truly original. Most of it from late war.

Seriously? What more can we expect to see? To be honest, I was hoping to find more material from the units destroyed during Bagration.

As far as I saw, it includes both records from the central archives (= identical to NARA/BAMA funds) and records captured on the field by the Red Army. The later are the truly original.

For ex, entries 75-79 are V. AK in 1939-1940, during the battle for France. They are also in NARA.
But entries 92 or 99, also V. AK, are spring 1944 and are not in NARA.

Also, one advantage of the site vs. the NARA microfilm is getting color copies of the documents instead of black & white copies.
One downside is the ugly watermark.
