And not even a major general )

Well seen in the video lieutenant general.
This is either one of the commanders of the front armies, or a staff member.

Another unknown general.
Who ?
Maybe this is a prewar photo.

Anyone agree with that he is Alexander Alexandrovich Novikov?
Thanks!

IMO that's major general Aleksandr Filin, head of the Air Force Research Institute:

Women on the photo are Lyudmila Trosk (left) and Nina Slonova (right). Both were snipers in the 647 Rifle Regiment/216 Rifle Division.

I suppose, the photo was taken somewhere in North Taurida in February 1944. Trosk was killed soon thereafter on 1 March 1944.
