Ukraine. This plastic set is called "Хуторок" ("Khutorok") and has been made by Киевпластмасс (Kyivplastmass/Kiev plastics) in Ukraine about 1970 at USSR times. The set is based on the culture of the Ukrainian Cossacks, which appeared in the late fifteenth century and lasted until 1917. Note the Cossack clothes: wide trousers, knee-length beshmet, cloth top coat, cylindrical fur hat. I do not know the kind of plastic, maybe Carbolite?
