Aviator and Buran was two lines within Poljot now in Volmax. The Boctok and Paketa is cyrillic spelling.

A1. Poljot makes the engines for some types of watches. Just like seikosha does for Arktura, Sportura etc. So Aviator, Buran, Sturmanskie are some kinds of types of this russian company.
A2. Boctok or Vostok is the same company. First is written in cyrillic the second in latin. The same with Paketa or Raketa.

Why do some Poljots say Aviator or Buran on them? Why do some Vostocks say Bostok? And why do some Raketas say Paketa?

I may be repeating something here, but this may further clarify.

Volmax is now an entirely different company than Poljot which used to make and distribute watches for Poljot. They broke off on their own when Poljot broke up and now own the rights to the Aviator, Buran and Sturmanskie brand names.

Any watch with the word Poljot in addition to these brand names on the face would have been made before Volmax went independent. Or certainly in their early going as a seperate company. All watches produced under their brands no longer display Poljot on the face in any language.

Additionally, all the former Poljot movements are now made by MakTime and Vostok.

Hope this helps,
