The Russians fought in the war to help Serbia, WWI started with the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, Austria wanted the basically get revenge on Serbia, so the Russians helped them, that's the direct cause of why Russian was fighting in WWI, other causes might be Russia was in an alliance with the British and France...
