                  I’m surprised how well built that is considering the reputation of soviet civilian goods

                            In US movies they tend to ridicule the Russia tech but it seems that they made some really hig quality electronics.

                                Greetings from Germany. The russian letters spell "Junost" (spelled like jew-nost). In the eastern part of gerrmany these sets were very popular due to their low price compared to local products (which would have been RFT), so we still have a lot of those. Another popular TV was the Raduga 706, which was one of the first soviet colour tvs. It was well known for bursting into flames suddenly and having a lot of hard to get tubes.

                                  I live in a former Soviet country and have been trying to restore a few of these small B/W sets from the 70s and 80s. The unit you have is remarkably clean inside for its age.

                                                Wow those Russians made a very well built TV set for 1976 standards. I did a google search and found a schematic diagram for the Ynoust 401 in pdf format here ( http://rt-manning.net/1305481048_yunost-401.pdf). It was on this site: http://rt-manning.net/Soviet_TV_set.htm along with other information that may help too.
                                                Would be nice to see it running again.

                                                  You very well might get a picture. The line rate is very close (15625Hz vs. 15634Hz).
                                                  Video modulation negative as in USA.
                                                  Audio won't work, but you might be able to hear the audio by placing a shortwave radio, tuned to 6500kHz, by the set.

                                                  POWER IT UP!

                                                        I like get used to programmable scientific calculators during my college years and the ones made by Hewlett Packard were the best. When I start seeing Russian calculators on eBay I wonder how they are constructed and worked. I get the two most popular models: the Elektronika Mk-52 and Mk-61 made by 1983 and they were designed on HP logic of operation (Polish notation) and even one resembles them (HP-33E) They are very interesting calculators indeed, used by Russians engineers and students when PCs were not as common, even were sent into space for backup use by cosmonauts. The calculators are somehow rustic and ordinary, using fluorescent green displays that were power hungry, made not as robust in construction to Western standards, the keyboard were very soft but registered ok, also very slow but very reliable and capable, even they come with schematics for repair and they have a guarantee of 24 months based on manufacturing date. That's started my curiosity on Russian electronics. Last month I became interested in getting some portable radios to study them. My first one arrived yesterday and their construction are very good. When politics came in to play we get sometimes the wrong impression from countries and that applies to the former Soviet Union.

                                                          One of our high school teachers was born and raised in the Soviet Union and her family immigrated to the US when she was in high school. She told us what the CCCP stood for in Russian and it sounded a lot like Sovietuh Socialistuh and the third C had a S sound to it as well, can’t remember the P. I was in High School in the 1980’s so it’s been a minute. Haha. She was a social studies teacher.

However, if you have a design that operate identical to another design and you didn't invent it? It's a clone. You can be intelligent and make a replica of something, but that doesn't NOT make it a replica lol.

That thing was not cheap by any standards. You can tell that the same place that made this TV was also making military electronics as some of the parts, including the screws are "military green" colour.
