Yes, they could very well be Rumanians, but this is not entirely sure, as their dress and the flat top lamb skin hat seems to be uncommon...

Are those military men Russians, Bulgarians or Hungarians?

I believe the men to be Prussians / Germans,

the picture is obviously from W.W.1 period.

Of interest is the man in the background,

although in peasant dress, he sports a "Red Cross" armband,

the group of men might be prisoners, or a work party.

Kevin in Deva. :D

Yes, the military are Germans of WW1, but is not clear if they are Prussians or from other part of the German Empire. It depends on the colours of the national cockades on their caps.

It seems to be a corvee party for the german army somewhere in a wallachian village during the Central powers occupation of southern Romania, most probably during the winter of 1917-1918. The German officers convoked the male population of a village for some works. The Romanian checking the lists near the German officer wears a Romanian officer tunic with no rank insignia.

These men are not Rumanian. They look more like Russian.

The men on the top photo don't look Rumanian either.
The soldiers on the bottom photo indeed appear to me as Turkish.

These are railroad worker's uniforms, and I don't have the knowledge to identify them. Entschuldigung...

They are russian POWs, probably captured by the Germans or Austrians on the romanian front.

The people on the upper photo seems to wear the traditional montenegrin costume. They might be POWs or workers brought from Montenegro for some works in Wallachia during 1917-1918.

In the lower photo there are bosnian military of the austro-hungarian army, in 1917 or 1918. The bosnians wore regular KuK uniforms but had fezes, as they are muslims. The turkish soldiers wore a kind of sun hemet as headear during WW1.
