CNews.ru had reported that the domains imacintosh.ru and itunes-store.ru displayed "iTunes Store Russia 21.04.2008".
The sites have now been updated with the following (ambitious) information:
iTunes Store Russia Blog - 21.04.2008 (unofficial)
iPhone 3G - 09.06.2008
iTunes 8 - 06.10.2008
iTunes Store Russia - 05.01.2009
iPhone Russia - 11.06.2009
The problem is that the registration of the site belongs to "firstname.lastname@example.org", making it likely to simply be a unaffiliated ("hoax") registration, rather than an arm of Apple or Apple's Russian distributor.
