What do these various markings on the Receiver of my M44 (A 1946 Izhevsk) mean? I will do my best to describe them but I am also going to include a picture of the receiver.

Year of production 1946 is shown but with a lowercase r next to it (1946r)
There is a Y on the left-hand side near the Hammer & Sickle Crest.

On the Right-side of the receiver are what appear to be a U and a K.

What do all of these markings mean? I would really appreciate any help.;)

The r is the russian abbreviation for the word Goda or "year"

The Y is the powder proof marking, K the point of aim proof and the U is the general acceptance marking.
