I can tell you so far that the name is Kreminne (кремінне).

You can find quite a few of them online by Ukrainian sellers:

http://accordion-bayan.com/search/?search=кремінне

One seller says they were made at an instrument factory in Kreminne: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-soviet...277103?hash=item3d15a7176f:g:8RsAAOSwGYVW-DBC

Here is a translated article about the Kreminne factory:
https://translate.google.com/transl...rumentariyu-kreminskoї-muzichnoї-fabriki.html

It looks like the factory produced instruments from around 1930 - 1990.
