Default SS in Russia?

Fellow collectors,

I would like to share this picture that I belive shows SS troops in Russia.
There is no writing on the back but I think the soldier on the extreme left may show a rottenfuhrer collartab.

comments are welcome.

regards
Peter

Peter,

There are really no distinguishable features that I can see. Maybe there is some architecture I see in the background? Other than that, this is a tough call...unless I'm missing something.
