Germany was allied with Austria-Hungary, much like how Canada is allied with America, so they have to go to war with them even if they don't agree to. Russia was allied with Serbia and that's who Austria-Hungary declaired war with. Russia would not tolerate a moballized army on its border so Russia mobalized its army against Austraia. Germany ordered Russia to stop mobalizing but when Russia refused Germany declaired war on Russia.
