Is this a booklet cover? Or did it contain 20 stamps from the stamp show? It appears to be in four languages, was the show oriented to the nations of what we would have referred to as the "eastern block" countries?

Two languages only : russian and french (UPU official language)
"timbres oblitérés" is "used stamps" in french
I assume it was a set of 20 used stamps sold or given by Soviet Post.

1958 was the 100th anniversary of the first Russian issue. Translates to "20 stamp cancels (Marks)". But as for the purpose, I'm not sure.

Pre-WWII the preferred abbreviation in the Soviet Union was "URSS" it has been replaced with "USSR".

I was in error in my previous reply. It appears to be in two languages. "Mapok", which I thought was Hungarian is also a Russian word for stamp. "Timbres Obliteres" is French for used (or canceled) stamp. Possibly show cancels?

Do you know the physical dimensions of this? I'm thinking it may have been a label on a packet of 20 stamps canceled or perhaps with a special cancel from the show?

Just a thought:

Word expo fair Brussels in 1958.

Some kind of give away package from the Russian pavillion.

The language being in Russian and French> French is one of the languages spoken in Belgium.

The building shown looks a lot like the Rusian pavillon

Square building with kind of aerials on top.

I think Johan Buvelot is on the right track. The image could very well be the Russian pavilion at the Brussels' World Fair. And the lettering below the building may be Brussels but I can't see it well enough to be sure.

Actually a little lesson just for the fun of it: Russian is a case based language, where words are declined based on number. 1 is the regular word as in a dictionary, 2-4 is in the genitive singular case, and 5-21 is in genitive plural, and the pattern continues. Hence the actual Russian word for stamp is marka;, but is declined here to marok; because there are 20 of them.

Most probably, it is an insert in a package of 20 used Soviet stamps prepared in about 1958, possibly, for the EXPO exhibition in Bruxelles primarily.

In th USSR, it was a usual pratice in the period since late 1950s and up to the mid-1980s, to sell used stamps in packages of up to 20-25 stamps through Soyuzpechat outlets. Some might be addressed for foreign collectors.
