Spoof site pokes fun at Putin & Co

Social networking may be all the craze, but it's doubtful a group of cheeky Russians are expecting a Presidential Award anytime soon.

They've created a 'networking' site featuring Vladimir Putin and the four candidates to become Russia's next president. Even their 'friends', such as George Bush, Nicolas Sarkozy and Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, get a look in.

The site is a parody of a popular Russian social networking service, although most of its tabs and links are inactive.
