Translation of short text  
by Truhachev (RU), Last modified: 2016-09-23, 08:27  Spam?  
Yes,it's Russian. The text has 3 words: В ДЕНЬ АНГЕЛА ( V DEN ANGELA). Literally it means: At (your) Saint’s day( or Name Day). This cup is a gift given at somebody's Saint’s(name) day( maybe a child).

Before, a child got the name from the Church, during the  christening . It was chosen not at random, but according to one of several rules. Most often, the child has been named in honor of the saint who had been memorized at the birthday of the child or the day of nomination, as well as the day of baptism. For girls it was allowed offset for a few days, if there was no memory of holy women. With this choice, the birthday and еру name day often coincided and were joined together  in the minds. Until now, birthday children are called those who celebrates a holiday, but Christians celebrate birthday party in honor of the relevant Saint person.

I've found it in the Wiki:
День ангела - день принятия таинства крещения, иногда — иное название именин.
It means:
Name Day is the day of the adoption of the sacraments of baptism, sometimes - another name for birthday.

Some more details you'll find here:
