Call for XOs
If for some reason you possess an XO machine that you feel you do not need, please contact Boris Yarmakhov of OLPC - Russia team at firstname.lastname@example.org We will do our best to make sure your XO is delivered to a Russian child who needs it and ready to use it under supervision of a Russian teacher who knows how to teach with it.
Russia is one of the countries that have expressed an interest at the Ministry of Education level or higher.
Here is a press release from the Minister of Education (in Russian) outlining plans for village schools including computer facilities. This was written before the OLPC project was publicised. Another statement answering questions about plans to place computers in every school.

Note, that due to dynamic nature of wiki, it is recommended to watch a page you are going to translate, in order to keep translation up-to-date with original.
As several people may work concurrently on a same wiki page, it would be nice to mark intermediate versions with "in progress" comment, so one could easily know that the page is being translated just now.
