1/13/2013 6:02 PM The stamps are in both Russian and Ukrainian (and are from the Rudkovsky Rayon government of Drogobych Oblast' in Ukraine SSR) but the text is in Ukrainian.

It mentions Srul' Gershkovich Vay[n]shtok, who I presume is the person of interest to you.

I'll show the letter to my neighbor, a recent immigrant from Ukraine, and let you know what it says.
1/14/2013 8:26 AM My neighbor says it's a certificate that he was actually born and lived there until October 1940
1/22/2013 8:23 PM Here is word by word translation:
This certificate is issued by Rudki Town Council to the citizen Vayshitok Srul Gershevitch (son of Gersh) to confirm that he was born and has resided till October 1940 in Rudki, Drogobych Oblast. Confirmed and signed by Head of the Council - Chaykovski, and the secretary Garbachuk.
