Russian (USSR) medium format SLR Camera Kiev-6C 6S + lens Vega-12B 2.8/90.

The Kiev 6C (latin letter type 6S) is medium format SLR camera built in the Arsenal factory in Ukraine during the Soviet era. The design was based very closely on the popular East German Pentacon Six and as such it shared many of that camera's design flaws. It is fully manual, has TTL metering within the removable prism, and uses 120 or 220 roll film.
The Kiev 6C cameras use cloth focal plane shutters and support speeds from 1/1000 to 1/2 sec, as well as a bulb (B) setting.
The lenses are interchangeable with the Pentacon Six mount. Original lenses were not coated and therefore mostly suitable for black and white work.
Later the design was revised with improvements to the shutter and film advance mechanisms as well as the dropping of the 220 film format.
