AFAIK, president of Wikimedia Russia is Vladimir Medeyko, not
Stanislav Kozlovskiy. And "wikipedia.ru" seems to be squatted.

I have to admit that cyber-squatters have become more inventive. They
are making NPOs for squatting domains of other NPOs.

Presumably they meant http://wikimedia.ru/ , which is of course the
WM-RU chapter :-)

Stanislav Kozlovskiy is a vice-president of Wikimedia Russia.

It is still not clear whether this is hoax or somebody really filed a
lawsuit.

As I understand it he didn't file the lawsuit, he just complained to the
police. The police was obliged to tick the box contacting somebody but they
don't take it too seriously. The files in question - Á translation of
Mussolini book and a leaglet about Beslan were already removed from the
Russian Wikisource. As for The Ultimatum to remove all fascist simbols form
all articles I don't think he can or will do anything about it.

They have created a template to put on works that are on the Russian
Federal List of Extremist Materials.

For those who have forgotten it, we had a similar issue with
http://fr.wikisource.org/wiki/Les_Protocoles_des_Sages_de_Sion (I've
never understood how it's concluded: it's so complicated!).

Invokes Google translate.

Quite remarkable; it is a list of Russian court decision putting them on
the Federal List of Extremist Materials:

16. The newspaper "I am Russian. Lower Volga region" &#8470; 1 and
&#8470; 2, 2005 (decision Znamensky City Court of Astrakhan region of
03.07.2007).

17. Brochure "Cerberus freedom» &#8470; 11, 2005. (Municipal court
decision to the Sign of the Astrakhan region of 03.07.2007).

It gets much more interesting:

510. Book "What is the Bible actually teaching us?" published by Watch
tower Bible and Tract Society of New York, Inc. Brooklyn, New York,
U.S.A. 2005

552. Quotes by user "АК-47": since the beginning of the sentence
"Never..." to the semicolon; since the beginning of the sentence "Ize
sukermaeru" [?] to the last word; [...] on the website www.gorodsalavat.ru

640. L. Ron Hubbard "Dianetics 55!" (only a single copy?)

There was never any formal request for deletion by any French authority,
so we still have it.
