Evgeny, I think this butterfly is Melitaea ambiguaIf you pass the keys here http://babochki.narod.ru/ny00.html, the first of their distinctive features is the color of the near-edge fringe on the underside (in ambigua it is white or light yellow, in plotina - reddish), except this the underside pattern in plotina is more multicolored and median band is not stand out as шт ambigua, and consists of a single row of white spots (the last sign in the keys) -http: // babochki.narod.ru/ny22.html, and in ambigua - a band of light, large double spots http://babochki.narod.ru/ny19.html. Here, too, differences are clearly visible http://rusinsects.com/nymph/n-melict.хтм
