The Pine Tree Web is pleased to announce the addition of the following
pages to materials on Scouting in Russia. Most can be found by referring to
the Russian Scouting Home Page at:
-- Home Page of the Scouts of Dubna. A founding member of the Federation of
Orthodox Scouts, the Scouts of Dubna have a strong bond with Scouts in
America in their "sister city" of LaCrosse, Wisconsin. The page is edited
and published with the support and cooperation of Nickolay Akatov,
Coordinator, Scouts of Dubna, Federation of Orthodox Scouts, Dubna, Russia.
-- Home Page of the Federation of Orthodox Scouts (FOS). The Federation is
one of Russia's major Scouting organizations. It is sponsored by the
Russian Orthodox Church and maintains a training center in Dubna. The page
is edited and published with the support and cooperation of the Federation
of Orthodox Scouts, Moscow, Russia. (Site Under construction)

now features links to the following official web pages for Russian Scouting:

The progress of Scouting in Russia is a wonderful process to see. I hope
these pages will be able to convey some of the intense dedication of
Scouters and Scouts in those lands to their fellow Scouts around the world.
I hope you find this material of interest.
