  • A voluntary experiment to label video games will begin in Russia in early autumn. Participants have developed seven key categories, Izvestia reported. The list of sensitive content will include scenes of violence, sex, smoking and alcohol, drug use, foul language, as well as those related to fear and microtransactions.
  • On July 8, the government approved amendments by the Ministry of Finance to the Law “On Lotteries”, which introduce a new system of targeted deductions from lotteries to finance socially significant objects and events, Vedomosti newspaper reports.
  • A federal project for controlled recruitment of migrants could emerge in Russia, writes RBC. Among the proposals are the creation of a special operator, the elimination of fingerprinting and language tests outside Russia, and the linking of migrants with employers.
  • Rospatent believes that Russian applicants, despite EU sanctions, have the right to register intellectual property there by filing international applications. The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is obliged to accept all incoming applications and cannot deny Russian applicants the right to file an application. At the same time, WIPO cannot guarantee the registration of intellectual rights in the EU, RBC reports, citing the department’s response on this issue.


  • The semiconductor plant Mikron is negotiating with the Ministry of Industry and Trade on four projects for the development of microelectronics worth a total of 350 billion rubles by 2027, Kommersant reported. These include the construction of a new chip production facility with a topology of 90 to 40 nm, the expansion of existing capacities, as well as the production of components from more efficient materials.
  • On July 2, the Moscow Arbitration Court accepted H&N JSC’s (formerly Danone Russia) claim to invalidate the company’s additional tax assessment in the amount of 836 million rubles, Vedomosti reported.
  • The average income of Russians who work constantly or occasionally through online platforms such as Avito.Services, Yandex Go and Profi.ru has grown by more than 40% in two years: from 15 thousand to 21.3 thousand rubles a month, RBC writes, citing data from researchers at the Institute of Social Policy of the Higher School of Economics of the National Research University “Platform employment in Russia: dynamics of prevalence and key characteristics of employees.”
  • Kaspersky Lab has launched Kaspersky Appicenter, an application marketplace aimed at corporate clients and industrial companies. Any third-party software developer will be able to create applications for it, but must register, writes Vedomosti.

Services and technologies

  • Demand for the services of Russian hosting providers is growing in Turkey and Kazakhstan, Kommersant reported. On average, demand for virtual hosting has already increased by 50% year-on-year over the past six months. In Russia, on the contrary, demand has stabilised.
  • Scammers have begun stealing money and personal data from Russians via YouTube, experts cited by Izvestia have warned. Attackers send emails with links disguised as notifications from a video hosting site, and these messages become the first step in defrauding potential victims.
