    Looks like an amphibious personnel carrier. My guess, it originates from somewhere in europe based on it's appearance. Other than that I don't know sorry.

    PS: Wish we had a tool which could tell us what was in a picture!

    This is possibly a variant of GAZ-71 (ГАЗ-71), built by the Gorky Automobile Plant (Го́рьковский автомоби́льный заво́д). Looks like a tracked amphibious vehicle or for use in marshy lands.

    I looked at the base of the photo and it says fotodesk.tomsk.ru and the source is here: http://fotodesk.tomsk.ru/c200-11539.html while other variants can be seen here: http://www.avtorinok.ru/cat_trucks/cars.php?model_id=5715 .

    Here's a larger image:

    GAZ-34039 Amphibious Crawler is a modern counterpart of this machine. Details here: http://warfare.ru/?catid=328&linkid=2349 .
