A U.S. money order wouldn't work over there.  Outside of sending cash,

                An Environmental Youth Working Camp

The camp will be held on October 7-18, 1998 in Novorossiysk, the
largest Russian industrial city and port on the Black sea.

The camp has the aim of bringing together young representatives of
different environmental NGOs, students in environmental sciences and
just young people from different countries:

… to share experience in implementing urban environmental projects;
… to work together in parks of Novorossiysk and in the new arboretum;
… to study methods of practical urban environment protection;
… to have nice time and to study Russian students' culture.

The camp will concentrate on practical urban environmental projects -
creation, protection and upkeep of city parks, botanical gardens,
arboretums, etc. Both practical and institutional aspects of this
problem will be discussed. A project "Arboretum in Novorossiysk" which
is being implemented by a local initiative group with the support of
the city administration and Leadership for Environment and Development
program will be analyzed as a case study. The participants will
attend lectures, seminars - and - will work in the city parks.

The camp program will give the participants an opportunity to
communicate with professors and students of the local University.
Site visits, mountain trip and an excursion to a famous vine museum
of Abrau Durso are also on the agenda.

HI TO ALL!
Thank you, dear WEB-organizers (GREG and NATALIYA) - for this
opportunity.

I am interesting in that problem - I want to make the International Calls
from my city NOVOKUZNETSK (Siberia, Russia) to the city TORONTO (CANADA) -
more cheaper.  But I don't know the alternative ways (other - than using
STATE TELEPHONE SERVICE - "Gorodskaya Telefonnaya Stantsiya").  I know in
general - there are several ways to make the international calls cheaper
(using cards etc) - but no one specificaly.  I'd appreciate to have any
information.

Thanks.
Bye.

Is there an address (email, regular or fax) for General Alexandr Lebed,
I believe recently elected as governer of Siberia?  The one who was
fired by Yeltsin and will probably run for President in 2000.

Any information on how to write, fax, or email to him would be greatly
appreciated.

Subject: geneology

Friends,

        I am interested in finding out about my 'roots' in Russia.

        Unfortunately, I was orphaned at an early age, so the information
that I
have is sparce at best.

        From what I gather, My grandparents immigrated to the U.S. during the
Bolshevic revolution, apparently fugitives, My grandfather, seemingly
escorted by his great auntat the age of seven.

        From what I have been told my family line had been priests, My name
Nicholas Marazoff is purported to be a name handed down father to son as
far back as anyone knew.

        Sorry so sparce, if you can help, it would be appreciated.
        Thanx,
                Colya
