Most Scouting organizations in the world are associated with either the WOSM (World Organization of Scouting Movements) or WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts). The Boy Scouts of America is associated with WOSM, the Girl Scouts of the United States of America is associated with WAGGGS. Each country is permitted only one member in WOSM, so if there are multiple Scouting organizations in a given country (as some have), they must have a federation that in turn becomes the WOSM member. Russia's member is shown as Russian Association of Scouts and Navigators. Unforunately I don't read Russian
and the English
side of the site doesn't seem to work well, so I can't tell if these guys are associated with them or not.

The Russian site does not really work either: there is a functioning menu, but no content. Judging by the fact that WOSM (Geneva is mentioned as part of the name) appears on the menu, they probably are associated with it.
