You sure it isn't for vodka ?
I don't think the markings are Russian, but remember the USSR was made up of many nationalities. I cannot read this.
Funny you say that Steve. By rights, frontline soldiers should have got 100 grams of Vodka as part of the ration. But very few seemed to have got this... One account of a tank rider I have read said he got the ration only once in several years at the Front.
