Hi and welcome! That map looks very odd in Russia, but the projection is Goode's interrupted homolosine, I believe.

Yeap, cannot figure out whether that should be Kamchatka or what.

By the way, is there some open-source software to create this projection, and perhaps other projections? It would be very helpful for mapping the points to latitudes-longitudes. Not the mention the issue that projections have a freedom about on what longitude and latitude you center the map and also about what direction is 'up' on the map.
