The characters in the serial number are hard to tell from the blurry pic, but it's probably "ГГ" (which is Russian for "GG").

Vyatskiye Polyany refers to Molot factory. It's actually the town that "JSC Vyatka-Polyansky Machine-Building Plant, Molot" is located. The symbol above it is their logo.

The PCT logo is the Russian GOST-R certification logo which basically means it is certified for consumer use by the Russian gov't (basically a "seal of approval," if I understand it correctly).

The <rИc> logo is the Russian State Testing Station logo certifying the product was tested and approved. You will see this on ammo boxes as well.

The circle П and the square "0З" (which is cyrillic for "0Z" (zero zee)) are standard small arms stamps.

My opinion is the ZDF imports were of better quality.
Mine have Galil/ Valmet style triggers and real RPK recoil springs.
