I recently acquired a cube puzzle which is clearly of Russian origin.

It resembles two similar puzzles in the database which are referred to as cubes from Leningrad.

The logo, however, fits the logo of Russian cubes of
PRODUCTION ASSOCIATION "HIMPRODUKT" of the Aksai Rostov region.

Does anyone know more about these cubes?

It also resembles a puzzle in Klara's collection, which she says comes from Ukraine.
I have also a similar puzzle which I bought off Ebay as an Ukraine cube.

Please more of this. It would be fine to get this properly added to the museum.
I am afraid everything from the former soviet union is heavily underrepresented in the museum.
