I believe he thinks Russians may be able to help him determine why the package was sent out. He did say he was going to take it to a local office to determine the seed type.

possibly someone elses Ebay purchase. Was there a tracking number or name on the package that could be tracked down?
If there was a tracking number the intended recipient may come looking for it.

I was assuming that the OP was Russian or Ukrainian. Perhaps it might help if he could also explain where he lives? The USDA doesn't allow foreign seeds or plants simply shipped in without going through inspection and quarantine...
However, from his OP, I gathered that:
1. He doesn't know who sent it or why. He ordered mushrooms and these clearly weren't mushrooms...
2. He can't identify the seed.
I was trying to understand why he thinks only a Russian would be able to identify the seeds. I can't imagine the people he knows who speak Russian are going to know why these were sent to him.
ETA - I think the place he ordered the mushrooms from simply messed up the order. It could be a seed sharing type of place where the seeds actually come from a co-op of growers.

Well, considering mushrooms produce spores rather than seeds, I'd wager a guess that what you have may be vermiculite, a medium for growing mushrooms.
However,if you've already compared pictures & that's not it, then you probably just received the wrong item.
