    Hello,
    There is uniform of state militia warrior on the 1st photo.
    Junior non-commissioned officer or equivalent rank is on the 2nd photo.
    Hope it helps.

    Thanks a lot for the suggestion! I guess that can be the case indeed. Found this page on the Tsarist police, the uniform displayed there is looking similar. However I cannot find the cross on the cap.

    ??????? ?????????? ????????

    The rank could be: Помощник околоточного надзирателя фельдфебель

    The cross on the cap on the 1st photo is the emblem of the militia (ополчения).
