The family history center suggested I get a translation of the Yiddish portion to see if it contains any additional information beyond the Russian, which provides:

Child: Dovid Rubenchik, Father: Faivish Rubenchik, Father's Father: Moisha, Mother: Shifra, Mother's Father: Abram, Rabbi Khanaless, Birthdate 29/10/1882 (28 Heshvan)

Thank you!

1/5/2022 8:56 PM 2 additions: father's double given name, and date of the circumsizion.

A boy was born, his name David
The father Mr. Yosef Feivish son of Moshe Rubentzik the mother Shifra daughter of Avraham
Born 28 Cheshven / 29 October, circumsizion 7 Kislev / 6 November.
[The birth must have been after nightfall, which is actually already 29 Cheshven in the Hebrew calendar, since the circumsizion is done the 8th day, and the circumsizion date here is the 9th - which was on Saturday and a postponed circumsizion cannot be done on Saturday].

Note: The civil date is according to the Julian calendar which was used at that time, this date is 13 days prior the Gregorian calendar date which we use today.
28 Cheshven 5643 = 29 October 1882 Julian = 10 November 1882 Gregorian, Friday.
7 Kislev 5643 = 6 November Julian 1882 = 18 November 1882 Gregorian, Saturday.
