This can be 10 years of Зарубежатомэнергострой (ЗАЭС), Soviet state company of building nuclear power plants in other countries.

The same abbreviation (ЗАЭС) has also the largest nuclear power plant in Europe - Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant, in Ukraine.

Anyway, there is a nuclear plant on the dial.

I think those octagon dialed Raketas commerate a lot of things. I had one celebrating fifty years of an Aluminium foundry,
I gave it away.
And I have this one celebrating the same area as your nuclear power plant (Montgomery Burns would be proud)?


I like it because it celebrates the Cossak heritage of my wife.

Ah, thanks, afka and emoscambio. I hadn't noticed that the third character in the abbreviation was a "э" and not a "з". Who on earth designed the cyrillic alphabet? (I know, it was Cyril, but I don't think he took his job very seriously.)
