Rasputitsa is the rainy spring and fall season in Russia, when dirt roads turn into intractable mud.  Pasha looks stoic about it.  He's going to spend a lot of time sitting in mud before the story is through. Beside him is his RBM-1 field radio.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=37l7P5… - translation is in the description, it's poor, but you can catch the meaning.

Oh, and you forgot about this little detail on his rifle: sta.sh/01n27f751wjm - according to what I've managed to find out, this piece is called "supporting nog" (or "pin"? I'm unsure if translation is correct) which was a support for a special ledge on the receiver - a measure to reduce the recoil.

Fantastic detail! I love how gritty and dirty it looks, most art is so "clean" it's nice to see someone draw a messy scene for a change!
