Russian Postal Uniforms

Came accross this old link about the then new postal uniform.A Twitter profile called raging.me said the postal uniforms 'sure look familiar to something fascist'.

However, Vadim Nosov, a spokesman for Russian Post, strenuously denied that the uniforms look the same, claiming that internet users had deliberately darkened the photos of the postal uniforms.

According to The Moscow Times, he told the RIA Novosti news agency: 'The uniform of postal management staff is dark blue, [but] office staff wear a lighter colour. The uniforms in the photographs distributed online have simply been retouched to look black.'

He added that the design takes its inspiration from army uniforms that date back to the rule of Peter the Great, the Emperor of Russia between 1721 and 1725.
Question, did Peter the Great introduce white shirt and tie into the Russian army?
As for looking lke the SS, its nearer many post war European uniforms rather than the SS.
