Russia: Mishki

Lyndon of Scraps of Moscow posts a comprehensive review of media and blog coverage of Mishki, the new pro-Kremlin children's movement that has rendered “many Russians and Russia-watchers” “speechless.” Lyndon has also discovered Mishki‘s website: “ got a “server not found” message, but then I thought that maybe this group uses the same cringe-inducing top-level-domain as Nashi's website. Sure enough, punching in got me to the freshly-baked website of this teddy bear of a youth group, says it has been online since November 21.”
