Not my area of expertise.
Tried researching and translating to provide more knowledgeable information.
The following is my very best speculation

Vintage Hand Carved Wooden Russian Chess Set
Extremely unique chunky very detailed figurines

Appears to be made of balsa wood
Lightweight pieces with clean blue felt bottoms

Appears similar to other sets made between the 60s-80s

шАхмАТЫ СЧВЕНЦРНЫЕ is the writing on outer paper carton along with more foreign to me words on side panel of box available for zooming in and reading if you are able.

Overall very well taken care of. All pieces present. One tiny nail that holds one of the latches down is missing as photographed. One side of board has very fine sun fading spots where the pieces were likely set up for play near a window. Original outer cardboard box is very brittle and has packing tape on it. Pieces are in great condition and no other visible marks or signs of handling.

Set weighs 5.1 lbs
Measures 19.5″ x 10″ x 2.5″ folded for storage and carrying, 19.5″ x 20″ x 1.25″ open
Foam on both sides of inner well to protect pieces
