The paper considers one of the first steps of implementation of the Russian Virtual Observatory Information Infrastructure (RVOII) organization of a Community cente r at IPI RAS (Moscow) for support of scientific astronomical problem solving over distributed repositories of astronomical information. As a motivation the trends for distributed infrastructure development for e-science are presented. Information infrastructure of RVO aimed to satisfy International Virtual Observatory Alliance standards is briefly introduced. Structure of AstroGrid system considered as a core of RVOII is presented in brief. First trial of scientific use of AstroGrid RVO over distributed astronomic sources is explained in detail.
