Design: The general format is the same as the USSR label.
History: The 'Aprelovka Zavod' company had German capitalist beginnings, dating from the pre-WWI era (c. 1910). Named for the village where the factory was located, it came under German occupation during WWII, but after the war was restarted with Russian management.
