That's also the case with me.

Here's General Shalva Maghlakelidze, leader of the Georgian Legion, on Wikipedia. I'll try and piece together some more reliable info on him in a few days.

By the way, which uniform is he wearing??

- I think its either Polish uniform or a POW photo when the insignia was ordered to be taken down.

Thanks!!

I may have found an additional Ukrainian in a Generals-rank.
Hryhorenko, Petro

Here are buried among other commanders of the Ukrainian struggle for freedom -- The Genenerals
Oleksander Zahrods’kyj
Pavlo Shandruk
Petro Diachenko
Taras Bulba-Borovetz
Petro Hryhorenko.

He was the chairman of the Ukrainian Helsinki Group. (Or is this the more correct Helsinki Watch Group of the post WWII years???

One the other side Hryhorenko sounds like:
Generalmajor Kyryjenko,
2.) Mg. Stab/Russisches Schutzkorps in Serbien

Generalmajor Kipryjenko, I.
2.) Kdt Brigade/Russisches Schutzkorps in Serbien


======================================

For the Georgians in General-ranks I have found, that there are 2 persons with the almost same names. (at least for my western hemisphere ears)

Čačewadze, Dotik [this is the correct writing in German papers; and he is not a count/prince]
and
Fürst Čawčewadze, Spiridon [this is the correct writing in German papers; and he is a count/prince]

Grigorenko (that is how his name was spelled before "Ukrainization") had no relation to ROA. During the war he had the number of position in the Soviet Army including chief of staff of a rifle division on the Soviet-German Front and was promoted to major general only in 1959. Emigrated to the USA in 1977. See:

I couldn't found the name Russian Major-General Gobalinzow. Maybe someone know his exact name?
