“A very interesting endgame with a systematic movement of the pieces.” Kasparian

Completely correct kp21. Well done. The study is one on the theme of domination. White needs to capture just one of the Black rooks to achieve a won position, and as you point out, any move other than 2... Rc5 loses that rook. Similarly the following moves were all forced.
The study by L. Olmutsky was originally published in Shakhmaty (Riga) 1961 and won a prize.
