Once again I need some help understanding part of a story:

My grandfather married in 1909 and in 1910 began 4 years of service in the 
Russian army.  His wife was taken to Germany for safety.  This confuses me 
because he was a Russian soldier, they were fighting the Germans, she was the 
wife of a Russian soldier, yet of German heritage.

Does anyone know about this?
