I believe they are Tanyusha-SWSU 1 & 2 which are also referred variously as Tanyusha-YuZGU 1 & 2, or Танюша-ЮЗГУ 1 & 2, or Radioskaf 6 & 7 (RS6S, RS7S).https://amsat-uk.org/2017/06/30/russian-tanusha-1-and-2-satellites/
Also Tomsk-TPU-120 ??https://amsat-uk.org/2016/12/29/tomsk-tpu-120-eva-deployment/

 This twitter post says that several small satellites will be hand-deployed
during the Russian EVA tomorrow:


Anyone know the details? I assume they would want to release them "towards
earth" and not in the other direction so that they would have a lower orbit
than the station and not run into them at some point. Do they just toss
them out?
