The one being repaired might be an artillery fire control rado VRGKB
The one being used might be of type VRFK or some subtype of it

The 2 stick grenades are Finnish "Varsikranaatti M/32" or "Varsikranaatti M/41", if I'm not mistaken the left one has a belt carrying hook, making it M/32. The egg grenade in the foreground is a Finnish "Sirpalekranaatti M/41" and in the background there seems to be a Finnish drop shaped egg grenade "Munakranaatti M/32".

Previous photo - smoke hand grenades m/43. Notice grey stripe going around warhead of the grenade.

The latest photo shows a variety of hand grenade designs. The small ones with grooved warhead and belt hook (like the one visible in right hand of the soldier) are Finnish stick hand grenade m/32. Finnish stick hand grenade M/41 looks otherwise identical, but did not have belt hook. Hence if the belt hook is not visible in the photo, but might be hidden behind the grenade body, it is impossible to say if the particular hand grenade is m/32 or m/41. The larger stick hand grenades are German stick hand grenades m/24 and there is also one German egg hand grenade m/39 visible on top of the stick hand grenades.
