Mystery Magnet Motor Study Part 2

Can anyone solve the puzzle of this mystery magnet motor? Here is my motor setup taken apart to show what I have been working with. These strange all permanent magnet motors seem to be one off designs where no one else can build a running version of it — unless there is a hidden power source. I don’t care if there is a hidden power source the machine are usually very interesting and fun to study.
Here is another video of the magnet motor I am studying with a description by the inventor of how it works. I think that there is something missing. What do you think?
This beautiful Russian 3D printed version almost runs. It appears (to me) to run longer than it should have before it stops.
