This is in German, so either of German or Austrian origin. "Brief" means letter. The "Best..."
at top could be a place-name. Sorry, I don't know German markings.

It seems that your stamp has been cancelled by a Russian postmark (faint strike, on the let of the scan) then received a German postmark strike on arrival.

Only a complete cover could tell better I guess ...

Best... is a part of the word Bestellung = Order or maybe Bestellt = ordered. I saw such markings applied e.g. to printed matter that arrived to Germany. Usually, the strike does not cover the stamps, so it is no cancellation and got on the stamp occasionally. Unfortunately, I have not an item with its strike and never thought about its meaning before.

It's "Bestellt" and is translated as "delivered" in this case. It's a strike from the delivering post office. From a german major city. Most probably Berlin.
