Riddle partly solved. It's a Japonese toll card something system. Question remains: if that's the card reader...where is the transponder unit?

My understanding of them is that the little reader is the main unit, it just needs an aerial. I'd guess that maybe runs up along the top of the windscreen.

This device is called ETC.
The ETC in-vehicle device - ETC portal site
In my Japanese model the antenna is in the upper left corner on the windshield.
When the engine starts the device should to say something in Japanese, probably: "Take me back to Japan, I'm afraid in Russia!"
