    Russia’s Love Affair With Crypto Confuses Many

    Russia is going all in on bitcoin
    https://news.vice.com/story/russia-is-going-all-in-on-bitcoin-and-everyones-got-a-theory

    I didn't realise electricity is that cheap in Russia...so there you have another reasin for going all out

    Barysevich said that with the current government-controlled electricity prices, Russia could make a lot of money from bitcoin. “If you have an electricity at the cost of 2 cents per kilowatt, it’s 10 times more profitable than pumping oil.”

    Russia's blockchain is based on Ethernum AFAIK (better for legal/financial instruments)

    Russian automated (as in workers do not have to manually handle pipes and other tasks) oil drilling platform.
    It is designed for easier relocation as well.

    Yep, Russia doesn't make anything. More like clowns in the west are either sore losers or don't have brains.

    Well, go talk to Kilogolf over at nuclear weapons section of forums, he thinks Russians are fucking stupid cause of their submarines and ballistic missiles. So we got those dolts even here on the forums.

    Then why you are posting in RUSSIAN defence forum?


    I have to say that this kind of stuff is the reason why I visit this forum.

    Russia si the only success story of the collapse of the eastern block.

    Every other country ( including the current nato/eu members) had a catastrophic collapse, and they never recovered from the shock.

    The only positive example Russia, and they did it on they own.

    Means the help to eastern Europe wasn't help really, but rather a devastating blow.

    No, he is being an ass by posting flame bait, but is pretending he is being Ironic to get away with any negative comments.

    You know what it is like.... you post something you truly believe, and then later pretend it was a joke when it is not well received...

    See slow clapping guy humour to understand... when it doesn't work he becomes the joke...

    Plant for production of model engines for model aircraft, boats, etc. This may not seem like much but it means
    that Russians economy is properly diversifying. It seems they have their act together and are reaching a global
    market.

    I have noticed that a lot of Russian companies can actually succeed outside Russia and sustain themselves with
    revenues from abroad while the Russian market takes its time to develop and allows them to survive. This is
    not something trivial. The world will not just buy any old junk, the production must be competitive. This indicates
    that Russian companies are real innovators and can at the very least reach reasonable standards of quality and
    function.

    "Almaz-Antey" completes the creation for the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Emergencies completely domestic PC
    The use of only Russian components will exclude any possible impact on the operation of the computer, said the general director of the holding Jan Novikov
    MOSCOW, January 31. / TASS /. The Institute of the Almaz-Antei Concern completes the creation of a fully domestic personal computer (PC). This was reported on Wednesday in the press service of the company.

    "All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of Radio Equipment" (part of the concern) is completing work on the creation of a domestic personal computer, developed on the element base of Russian production. In the product, only the domestic component base is used - from the case to the microcircuits, "said Jan Novikov, General Director of Almaz-Antey, whose words are quoted in the press service.

    He stressed that the use of only Russian components "completely excludes any theoretically possible extraneous influence on the operation of the computer."

    According to Novikov, the holding expects interest in the new development by the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Emergencies of Russia. In future, a separate production line can be opened for production of this PC.

    Medvedev confirmed: The state is not able to purchase Russian microelectronics


    The plan of guaranteed purchases of Russian civilian microelectronics in 2017 was almost completely not fulfilled. This was announced by Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev at a meeting of the government commission on the use of IT to improve the quality of life and business conditions. "The plan is carried out in quantitative terms by 13% for 2017," he said.

    Note that this assessment fully confirms the  recent conclusionsmade by  CNews  in the context of a detailed study of this issue. According to the editorial board, in 2017, with the state's plans to purchase domestic chips at least 18.6 billion at public tenders, electronics purchases can be traced at best to only 349 million rubles.

    What was not purchased

    "We oriented Russian manufacturers and government customers to purchase microelectronics, approved the plan," Medvedev said. - There are documents with electronic carriers, which are developed using microchips made in Russia. This is an electronic policy of compulsory medical insurance, passport and visa documents, bank cards, of course. Russian components should be used for the production of servers and computers. "

    According to Medvedev, the funds allocated for the purchase of domestic microcircuits can be considered significant. "Frankly speaking, they are spending badly," the head of the Russian government gave his assessment of the execution of the project under consideration.

    "We discussed with some colleagues who are present at this table: there are also subjective, probably reasons, and objective," Medvedev added. - But this is exactly the situation when money was like, and yet they are not used for the acquisition of our microelectronics. I think that there are problems here, including the organizational plan. They must be eliminated. "

    What else Medvedev sees as problems on the road to digitalization

    The above topic was touched upon by Medvedev in the context of the discussion of the state program "Digital Economy", adopted in 2017. In its consideration, the Prime Minister also noted the need to improve the education system so that it could provide the digital economy with literate personnel. "We should have more university graduates who have the basic competencies of the digital economy," he said. - More to produce IT professionals and more those who confidently use these technologies. It is important that people have the motivation to learn new directions that are in demand in the digital economy. This needs to involve employers. It is advantageous for them if their employees develop, receive additional knowledge. And large companies, including those with state participation, could create training services, courses. "

    Another topic touched by Medvedev, was the import substitution of software. "To support our developers, we have set a number of restrictions on the admission of foreign software to participate in public procurement," he recalled. - Municipal and state customers can only purchase programs that are in a special register. It is necessary to improve, by the way, the rules for maintaining this register. We need to take into account new programs that were created in Russia, and not only that the ownership of such software belongs to Russian companies. But this should be discussed, because there are pluses and minuses here. "

    The Head of the Russian Government is aware of the fact that state bodies retain the right to purchase foreign software if there are no adequate analogues in the register, but considers such purchases to be inadmissible if there are Russian programs that are similar in functionality.

    "We need to monitor this, including the Communications Ministry," he said. "Moreover, these things are rather delicate, and when they use various technical arguments in the discussion, they say:" We can not do this with such parameters, but we can not work with such parameters, buy foreign ... ". It is very difficult to assess this. But it is advisable to take experts from this industry, so that they subscribe to the fact that a particular software can not be used on this or that equipment. If experts independent of the company, including the state-owned company, said that our software is not good, then you need to buy. But I would ask you to follow this very carefully. "

    Putin says efficiency of Russian science will raise its world prestige

    MOSCOW, February 12. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday it was more important to make domestic science more efficient inside the country rather than to raise its prestige in the world.

    "Raising the efficiency [of science] inside the country is more important, of course, than the prestige [of Russian science] abroad," Putin said at a meeting with the finalists of the Leaders of Russia contest.

    The second direction is also very important but it is of secondary significance, the Russian leader said.
    "They will know about us even more [in the world], if we are able to organize normally the efficiency of our science’s work inside the country," Putin said.

    Is Dima really so stupid? Cannot believe this is just the way to hide bad will and state executives corruptive mentality.

    If you cannot achieve parameters with domestic change parameters for first release and wait 1-2 years to get what you need right? or it is even worse those people are liberal who believe in"invisible hand" In any case no education but managers have to replaced by somebody with right mindset.

    There may be a good reason to why they didn't blow all the allocated funds, especially in purchasing purely domestic.

    Elbrus-8CS which is technically Elbrus-16 is coming out this year, and the modernization of the Elbrus earlier iterations to work on DDR4 memory is also coming out this year.  Elrbus-4C has been the main purchase and a huge order was made to modernize various organizations in Russia to use it.  I believe majority of the defense industries, intelligence and police are now using systems based upon Elbrus-4C.  But there is also the introduction of the Baikal processors too, which are supposed to be used to various degrees as well.

    One thing is to talk about needing to purchase these systems, the next is the need to.  While it would be good to replace older systems with these new systems, there is some fundamental flaws.

    1) Software - not all software is optimized currently to use the Elbrus architecture.  It will take time for new software to be developed for it.  That also includes for very specific tasks.
    2) need to - A lot of industries in Russia were purchasing up super computers during the days prior to sanctions.  T-Platforms being the most popular of them, and also a couple other companies.  Their entire systems lineup were all Intel Xeon processors as example.  If billions have been spent already on these, why bother upgrading now?

    It will happen, but it will always be gradual.  By the sounds of it, they didn't even spend all the money allocated.  So it was really small number of purchases at current time.  This will change as new software and newer iterations come out.

    Key note is from above about Almaz Antey working on domestic PC's of domestic electronics. Almaz Antey being one of the largest military companies producing such PC's will become rather popular among other companies. It will take time. I imagine a lot of the domestic computers being purchased up at smaller rates, will end up being used to test software to see if it will work as intended. Where I work, we still use old HP Itaniums and older Xeons, while being specific on software only because we know it works with our systems. After adjustments in systems are done, we use small amount of tests subjects to test everything out. It takes years, before fully implemented everywhere.

    Can you imagine with major government institutions?

    It will happen, don't worry about that. It will just take a lot of time. They may even offer incentives for purchasing domestic pc's and software. Those who do not want to purchase it, wont get the money or incentives. Simple as that.

    I would say technologies that would make Russian brands competitive in international markets, even domestic ones. I feel the need to flush out foreign brands out of Russia by making Russian products more preferable by consumers. less foreign brands, less foreign influence in an average Russian and its always a good thing imo.

    All articles coming from Russia should be taken with a grain of salt. There is a clear pattern of hysteria in many of them.
    I guess this is modern Russian journalism's attempt at sensationalist revenue generation.

    I cannot see how the Federal government can commit to any level of Russian electronics purchases. Most government
    computer buying is of the PC variety for secretaries. Sorry to say, but MS Office, Windows and Intel-compatible hardware
    rule this niche. Sure, there are Linux office applications, but people don't like to transition to them and prefer to stick to
    Windows. There are also Russian companies that sell these standard solutions and I am sure are lobbying hard if not bribing
    to keep the status quo.

    And what you like to see exactly?  What exact results do you expert to see from such initiative?

    I would say technologies that would make Russian brands competitive in international markets, even domestic ones. I feel the need to flush out foreign brands out of Russia by making Russian products more preferable by consumers. less foreign brands, less foreign influence in an average Russian and its always a good thing imo.

    What if majority of Russian products are already sold in Russian markets? What if majority of the goods sold in Russia are now of Russian origin?

    How will you verify it? Verify the claims? Have you been to Russia? Have you inspected their products or their technology? Have you dissected it to determine where is what?

    What about the international market? What about growing export of Russian goods like tractors, cars, military goods, food products (non raw goods), sensors and other electronics from Rostec? What about nuclear tech?

    May I ask what you exactly do and how you judge the market structure?

    I see a lot of experts here. People who say "name me a product that has made in Russia in it?" Yet you barely can find made in anywhere else other than China. But that is because huge amount of average goods are made in China while Russian products are either stuff that average person can't gain hold of or would be deadly costly to take it apart to find those markings.

    Does anyone really expect Russia will all of a sudden, or ever, be mass producer of tea cups, computers, TV's radios, etc that says made in Russia? Does anyone really expect that their home made products will ever flood EU, Canada, US? Especially in today's political climate?

    I swear, most of you can't see beyond your own two feet. It's as if many of you believe that this world is actually balanced, honest and equal in opportunity and is all "free market".

    Let me give an example.

    http://en.gs-group.com/

    This company is in Kaliningrad Russia. They actually produce the microelectronics for their products. They also sell to many countries. Yet even in their products I can't see a made in Russia tag. Even the tags are all in English. The thing is, putting a "made in Russia" tag isn't popular thing to do. Because it would turn a lot of potential foreign sales off. I think it's rather shitty but it's reality. That is why they are putting in the Russian approved of quality made in Russia tag that is a giant K.

    I guess this is modern Russian journalism's attempt at sensationalist revenue generation.

    I cannot see how the Federal government can commit to any level of Russian electronics purchases.   Most government
    computer buying is of the PC variety for secretaries.   Sorry to say, but MS Office, Windows and Intel-compatible hardware
    rule this niche.   Sure, there are Linux office applications, but people don't like to transition to them and prefer to stick to
    Windows.   There are also Russian companies that sell these standard solutions and I am sure are lobbying hard if not bribing
    to keep the status quo.

    They are aiming more for office use with new software packages. But too many different companies making same iteration of Linux is major hold back. They are also looking at the market of terminals like used in hospitals.

    Servers are indeed their major market though. HPC's in general. Plus majority of news about sales to government agencies are rather new. Last couple of months.

    All i just wanted to happen is to see a set of Russian companies that can rival foreign ones like Toyota in car industry, Samsung in electronics, Microsoft in softwares, etc. I understand that there is pressure on foreign markets to avoid made in Russia products (including propaganda aimed at its quality) because of NATO interference but its no excuse to forgo such idea.

    This is good news, however of all the places in Russia why locate the factory in Kaliningrad? a territory that is surrounded by NATO. I understand that people in Kaliningrad need jobs but maybe it is safer if manufacturing facilities that deal with important and tech related stuff is located deep inside Russia.
    Also not labeling their products with "Made in Russia" is playing directly into NATO's hands, I know Russia has to play by NATO's rules in the meantime, maybe because Russia is still not Strong enough to set their own rules.
