 You would appear to be describing a Russian version of NiFe cells;
Nickel Iron Alkaline storage batteries.  Lighter than Lead Acid, can
last for decades if well built.

 Electrolyte is Potassium Hydroxide.  Possibly should be replaced every
ten years, but unless spilt only requires topping up with de-ionised
water ("Sterilised" = distilled water is much the same).  They do gas on
overcharge, so this is to be expected.
