From the few videos I've seen of Russian soldiers in Ukraine, the majority don't have any optics on their AK-74 rifles. Was this a proper representation of what's commonly carried by Russian troops?

I doubt the Russians have enough updated AK74's to equip all their troops. The AK12's go to the elite units first.
The Russians are a mess, poorly trained, equipped and have turned into the proverbial "paper tiger" in Ukraine. I doubt they have the infrastructure or capability to equip a "modern" army. They try to bully themselves to victory, and it just isn't going to work in today's high(er) tech modern battlefield (thank God!). Putin and his henchmen are nothing more than bullies and punks with machine guns..and nuclear weapons.

I much prefer the Avtomat Kalashnikov rifles chambered in 7.62 x 39 over 5.45 x 39.
