A key chain variant of Varikon with 4 layers from the former eastern block.

According to image 4 the puzzle's name is ????????, transliterated "Svetofor", translated "traffic lights".
The concept of this puzzle is identical to the Babylon Tower and many other puzzles. There are several layers with marbles in them. These marbles can be moved because the uppermost layer contains one hole to store one marble in. This one is a mini size, and forms a keychain.
Please recognize the half-transparent colour of the yellow marbles in image 5.
The price given here is based on the official exchange rate which was purely theoretical back then.
There is also a hungarian version (image 8) named "Varikon logical toy".
Images 9-12 show another russian version with a different leaflet.
That version is named ???????????????, transliterated "Perestanovochnykh", translated "permutations".
Images 13-14 show a leaflet from another version, named ?????? ???????????, transliterated "Brelok Golovolomka", translated "Key Chain Puzzle".
