Found this plant in woods, eastern Europe, 1000 m, mixed forrest (birch and beech).

Anyone recognize the species?

Thank you,

Not sure but I can hazard a guess. Not a plant exactly but they could be Oak galls. They come in many shapes and colors. There are lots of images out there; here is just one example; scroll down to see the image:

Hi JendanOn, Welcome!
It looks like Oak Gall to me also which are caused by parasitic wasps. Here are a few photos for comparison:
