Russian volunteers who enlisted into the German Army ( Wehrmacht Heer ) wore the patch of the Russian Liberation Army, an army which did not yet exist but was presented as a reality by Nazi propaganda . These volunteers (called Hiwi , an acronym for Hilfswilliger , roughly meaning "volunteers") were not under any Russian command or control; they were exclusively under German command carrying out various noncombat duties. A number of them were employed at the Battle of Stalingrad , where it was estimated that as much as one quarter of the 6th Army 's strength were Soviet citizens. Soon, several German commanders began forming small armed units out of them for various tasks, including combat against Soviet partisans , driving vehicles, carrying wounded, and delivering supplies.
