You see - there are affiliations between KHL, VHL and MHL teams. Unlike NA's NHL, that doesn't have ties with CHL teams.

So yes, MHL is the top of the junior hockey pyramid of Russia.

Edit: However you don't have an analogue to the Junior A, Junior B, etc. in Russia
Is MHL-B like a Junior A league (or assortment of regional junior leagues)?
