Wow, these posters definitely don't look European, Japanese or American - they have an aesthetic that I can't quite describe - Russia influenced by Atari with a pinch of grubby 'Look around You' & middle of the night 1980's Open University. Seriously cool me thinks. Found from this great article http://adangerousbusiness.com/2010/01/05/the-museum-of-soviet-video-games/

From the late '70s to the early '90s, Soviet military factories produced some 70 different video game models. Based largely (and crudely) on early Japanese designs, the games were distributed -- in the words of one military manual -- for the purposes of "entertainment and active leisure, as well as the development of visual-estimation abilities." Production of the games ceased with the collapse of communism, and as Nintendo consoles and PCs flooded the former Soviet states, the old arcade games were either destroyed or disappeared into warehouses and basements. It was mostly out of nostalgia that four friends at Moscow State Technical University began scouring the country to rescue these old games. So far they have located 32 of them and are doing their best to bring them back to life.
