The loyalty of many Finns to the Russian Empire, evident at the beginning of the war, gradually deteriorated due to the oppressive measures taken by the Russians, as well as due to their attempt to annihilate the autonomy of the Grand Duchy. These actions during the war were seen by the Finns as an attempt at total assimilation.
As a result, in May 1915, a group of Finnish activists made an agreement with the Germans, which allowed for about 2,000 volunteers that fled from Finland to benefit from military training in Germany. These Finnish volunteers formed a military unit called the Jäger Battalion, and in May 1916 they were sent to fight on the Eastern Front.
