    If it is Estonian , is that a different symbol of an L under an inverted V?
    The symbol on the grenades in question are either made or loaded in Russia by Krasnozavodsk Chemical Factory.
    This factory loaded mortars, grenades , flares etc.

    Triangle ^ is marking for plant No 11 or Krasnozavodsky chemical plant (Краснозаводский химический завод or КХЗ, on russian language). This plant was producing fuyes UYRGM and UYRGM'2 and also filling grenades RGD-5 etc.

    I agree with ron3350 that it is Russian. The same info shown from Fragman has misled me because Estonian has not Cyrillic but Latin characters. And someone can tell me about the Є inscribed in the rhumbus ? Is it a Ukranian Cyrillic character ?

    Hi. Around the time when I brought the instructional RGD 5, there was a bit of a discussion on it and similarly marked RGD-5s

    Back then the link to the Vasar website showed ordnance and other similar items. Cheers
