*There seem to be a lot of different writings for Kommandierskiye. The official Vostok site calls them Komandirskie. I suspect the also popular Kommandierskiye is a transcription that is closer to the original name as pronounced in Russian. At least I have found a couple of interesting articles about the history of Vostok and those sites often referred to them as Kommandierskiyes. I presume Komandirskie is a more modern and simplified transcription better suited for online selling.
