Can someone please help me identify which map projection this is?
Thanks for any useful pointers.

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.
