    In WW2, Germans caught wearing allied uniforms were executed. I wonder what would happen to those Russian soldiers if they were captured by the Georgians....

    But they were trying to deceive the American forces, here the Russians are clearly just fighting them conventionally. As far as I know, the only time the Germans wore US uniforms was during the Battle of the Bulge during the small missions to confuse the American forces.
