I would say that it's one of the white Russian units from the civil war period, which one?

I agree with Bill, I believe I saw a similar uniform in color plates of the Osprey MAA on the White Russian Armies of the Russian Revolution.

This is what I was going by, anyone who cares to translate the text will be doing a great service.
For some unknown reason I was unable to use photobucket, upload kept failing,
I have used ePhoto Bay as a stop gap.
Having never used this site before, I don't know how reliable it is with regards to how long the link will last.

Death's head

This is also an example of what in English is called a death's head, in German a Totenkopf, and (as here) in Russian "Adam's head."
