It was published, for what I know, in the 1997 edition of Nabokov's
"Stikhotvoreniya i poemy," Folio (Kharkov)- ACT (Moscow) Publishers;
isbn: 966-03-0120-0. It may still be available through www.kniga.com
(operating solely in Russian; hence, the Russian character typefonts
necessary); also, for an immediate reference, visit the Moshkow website:

Allow that really humongous page to load; after that, press "CTRL+F" on
your keyboard and type the following in the find-on-page textbox:

Then, press the "Find" button.
Hope everything goes well.
Good luck,
