Kind of SCA -- but with fire

Got a pointer to an interesting photo set today -- far as I can tell, it's a very SCA-like group in Russia. The spirit of the thing looks quite Pennsic, but with what appears to be live steel swords (and rather curiously shaped ones -- don't know if it's a period-Slavic model or what), and a willingness to set fire to the fort that they're fighting over. (I can only imagine the conniptions that an American insurance company would have over the whole thing.)
