    Buran (snow storm) was a name that Poljot used on some of theirs. Now a brand of Volmax , a sort of off shoot when Poljot went belly up.
    Volmax started at the old Poljot works, still there afaik , but relocated in Swiss. Buran is their Swiss , Aviator and Sturm... are more often than not from Moscow site
