Mystery spirit

I moved in to a new flat and some drinks and spirits were left behind. There is one mystery spirit. The label is in Cyrillic (I think). I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what it is (for all I know if could be Russian vodka or something really common).

The spirit is clear with a slight (VERY slight) gold/yellow tinge. The label has Cyrillic letters that look like 'KAPHOBATCKA' (not exactly a capital B, but a lower-case b with a hook), and underneat 'MYCKAMOBA' and under that 'PAKNR' (the R is backwards). The label says it's 40%. There's a seal with two lions, a crown above a shield and a K and 1953 within the shield.

I don't really drink much but am just intrigued as to what it is...
