The city of Moscow will buy moscow.ru?

This article is talking about improving the image of Moscow and, since moscow.com is taken, the city of Moscow is considering buying moscow.ru from its owner to build a city portal in English.

Everyone knows City Geodomains are mostly accessed by ... guess who? Not tourists! But people in the city itself!

Yes, but these results are heavily skewed due to the fact that Russians don't use Google!

That's right, but the point wasn't about Russian searchers, but about those who search for "Moscow" in English.

On a slightly lesser scale, anyone who believes they can broker my MoskvaCity.com and/or москвасити.com please feel free.

Target is enough for a villa each in country of your choice :-)
