On Monday, JasonForis — a.k.a. Kremlin-happy Russian internet guru Konstantin Rykov — put the domain name Maidan.ru (named for the epicenter of the Orange Revolution) up for sale on molotok.ru, the Russian ebay analog owned by similarly Kremlin-happy fund DST.
There are only three hours left in the auction, and the highest bidder is still gleb8077 who wagered 45,100 RUB (about $1,483 today). Gleb8077, whoever he is, placed the bet on Tuesday morning, and there’s been no action since, probably because, outside this little eye-poking stunt, no one in Moscow really cares about Kiev’s electoral reversal.
That said, do I hear 45,200?
