Maybe the most remedial question here

I just got a Maluch in Poland. What is the lever next to the choke, with the red arrow? I believe itís called a starter but I canít find anything online about what it does.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a bis which is different, but i believe it is literally the starter. When you lift it, it should start the engine.

Yes early versions had a lever next to the choke lever which would manually engage the starter solenoid. So to start you simply turn the ignition on an pull the lever up until it busts into life then you push it back down.
