Contrary to Western expectations, the Russian IT sector survived the sanctions

The unprecedented economic restrictions that the US and its allies have imposed against Russia have undoubtedly taken a toll on many of our industries.

Meanwhile, despite the intentions of the West to arrange a real collapse of the Russian economy, it is already obvious that this plan did not work.

It is worth noting that in addition to manufacturing, the agro-industrial complex, the military-industrial complex and other important industries, the IT sector also withstood the blow with dignity. Russia's disconnection from many foreign services, primarily cloud services, did not cause critical damage to our high-tech companies, most of which managed to transfer documentation and other important data to domestic servers before 2022.



Here it is worth recalling that in recent years the topic of Russia's possible disconnection from the western segment of the Internet has been repeatedly discussed. We even conducted exercises in our country aimed at eliminating the consequences of this situation.

In other words, the preparation of the IT sector for the scenario that the West is currently implementing began long before our NWO.

However, the main unpleasant "surprise" for the United States and its allies was not so much that the Russian IT sector survived, but that it continued to develop.

For example, great prospects in Russia have opened up for such projects as YouTube's analogue - Rutube, Google Play's analogue - RuStore and Wikipedia's analogue - Encyclopedia Runiversalis. Active work is underway to develop and improve the domestic Aurora OS and create an ecosystem for it.

In addition, Yandex, together with Sberbank, Rostelecom and VK, are planning to create a national mobile operating system.

Finally, our equipment is not so bad either. Of course, most of the electronics comes to Russia through "parallel imports". At the same time, there are advances in domestic manufacturers. For example, Yandex Market launched the Tuvio electronics and household appliances brand, as well as the Commo electronics accessories brand. However, in addition to Yandex, other companies are also making progress in this direction.

Vladimir Khodakov, a specialist in the development of high-load systems, talks about the current situation in the IT field:

    The worst thing is that it’s impossible, as before, to win an auction for the development of something digital, for a conditional 10 lyam, order it for 3 lyam in Ukraine from various large and small IT desks and put the difference in your pocket. Now look for your homegrown ones for a much higher price tag.

    We were still lucky, they recruited IT specialists in the west in 20, now they are laying off tens of thousands, and the same buns abroad are no longer and they began to pay well here, not like in the 90s when 200 thousand scientists left. But this is a war, and in a war the idea and reality are very different, the game is going on for a long time, I hope we will not lose our potential.

    Youtube - Rutube,


    And it generally works Rutube looks like a barely alive platform.

    In addition, Yandex, together with Sberbank, Rostelecom and VK, are planning to create a national mobile operating system.


    Well, if companies have a lot of extra money and resources that have nowhere to go, then why not, the idea itself, as for me, is not very promising.

        The fact is that microelectronics works on physical principles, and programming on logical ones. Both are invariant with respect to the state system, social foundations, moral principles and other prejudices. If you didn’t know, there are no Maxwell equations and relations separately for each state, the periodic table of Mendeleev wanted to spit on national preferences. Science, simply, is above all this, only we have science at the very bottom.

    Tenders have been held since time immemorial. Of course you can buy something for a penny. But there is a question of support, timely updates, etc. when software should be guided by the legislative acts of the Russian Federation, it is all the more better to be guided by its own.

    Contrary to Western expectations, the Russian IT sector survived the sanctions

    It's just that no one has taken us seriously yet.
    Well, they dodize a little harder and more often than usual, they blocked access to many resources from Russian addresses, they mold propaganda into technical forums, but in general - peace and quiet, good air. The software is available, the target bookmarks in the updates do not work yet, the relaxation among the admins and developers continues.
    Communication only and exclusively in Western messengers, on the desktops of the enemy OS - nothing has changed.
    The IT specialist, unfortunately, is a dumb and lazy bastard, without an urgent need to do anything.
    Well, the authorities are convinced that everything is in order, so nothing will change until it's too late.

      Not quite like that, or rather not quite like that. The IT specialist, unfortunately, is an educated and thoughtful bastard (otherwise he is unlikely to stay in IT), he is also greedy and has a working tool in his head. He does not need to transport a means of production, unlike a turner or a milling machine (a good machine, a heavy machine), he knows and knows foreign languages ​​quite well, and he also communicates freely at many foreign sites (the specifics of his work). And there is no other way.

    Encyclopedia Runiversalis

    For the first time I hear -) Very good. I wonder who will write about 2 million articles (there are about 2 million articles in the Russian Wiki segment), especially since RuWiki itself is many times inferior to the English and even German segment in terms of the speed of updating data and the breadth of their coverage. This is especially true of articles about the latest advances in technology and the development of breakthrough areas.
    The task is very "sweaty", requiring a colossal infusion of resources (which, by the way, will never pay off) and 100500 editors versed in topics.
    Wangyu that in this direction there will not even be an epic fail, but a quiet and bespontovy simulation. The challenge is clearly beyond our organizational ability to create content of this magnitude and quality, raise commensurate amounts, and orchestrate the effort of mass freelancers.

    Or the "flounder" will come out under some narrow range of issues. But even a narrow range of any direction, with the necessary degree of deepening into the question, requires writing and editing significant amounts of content, and the quality of writing is higher than Zen.

    P / s I found it on the Internet - it loads with a creak, 10 articles in key areas for me are unedited copy-paste from Wiki. It was worth the wait..

    These "stupid bastards", as you put it, often work hard for themselves and for the "smart" user, who at the same time is sure that the IT guy is stupid, but for some reason he can't cope without him. No one is obligated to do anything for you for free.
    As for the bourgeois software, many support was interrupted unilaterally.

    I heard about Rutube, RuStore too, but I hear about Runiversalis for the first time!

    The preparation of the IT sector for the scenario that is being implemented by the West today began long before our NWO.


    Our IT firms seemed to have a scenario for this case. Spare sites were activated promptly.
    For example, in March Serbia hosted a major IT congress in Belgrade.
    There were no local Serbs on it, from the word "absolutely".
    Only Russian firms with a Serbian residence permit.
    Even Yandex was represented by a local office, although there seems to have been a ban on work from abroad.

    For example, the great prospects in Russia, they opened up to such projects as the analogue of YouTube - Rutube, the analogue of Google Play - RuStore and the analogue of Wikipedia - Encyclopedia Runiversalis.

    Prospects have opened up, only until they completely isolate Cheburnet from the world, they will remain prospects because they will never win the competition.
    Going active work on the development and improvement of the domestic OS "Aurora" and the creation of an ecosystem for it.

    Neighing. All this since 2014 the mountain has been "developing" and has remained approximately in the same state.
    At the same time, domestic manufacturers. For example, Yandex Market launched the Tuvio electronics and household appliances brand, as well as the Commo electronics accessories brand. However, in addition to Yandex, other companies are also making progress in this direction.

    And more specifically? What of household (and not only, although military copies with technologies 30-40 years ago do not count) electronics made in Russia? Yes, even just twisted with a screwdriver?

    In the universal version, as it were, more decently. I didn’t look at my specialty, I’m not interested in Wiki’s opinion on organic chemistry. And so it will be necessary to climb ...

    And WHAT, have they already developed and launched mass production of 28nm chips, or has completely domestic software for PC been created?
    Maybe domestic drones from domestic parts are delivered in thousands of pieces to the NWO zone?
    Can the production of completely domestic controllers or smartphones be established?

    There is nothing!!! Only spent budget billions, swollen States of officials under the guise of IT projects and stupid laws supposedly aimed at supporting .....

    More than 100 thousand people have fallen since the beginning of the SVO and the massive mobilization. Even the most seedy galleys moved away from all this. There were 1C nicknames left, which simply have nowhere to go and are the most persistent, because they were not suitable for health reasons.

    the Russian IT sector survived, but the fact that it continued to develop
    She just disappeared.

    analogue of YouTube - Rutube, analogue of Google Play - RuStore and analogue of "Wikipedia" - Encyclopedia Runiversaly
    The people, as a rule, sat on YouTube and sits, even in the most distant villages, young people have installed applications for traffic tunneling on their phones and freely continue to communicate in social networks declared banned and extremist. The vaunted Rutube just lay there for more than three months, and when they fixed it, many found that some content was missing. Also, have you tried using it? How is it in terms of the convenience of the same search compared to YouTube? Unbearable.

    Finally, our equipment is not so bad either. Of course, most of the electronics comes to Russia through "parallel imports".
    It was disgusting with high-tech equipment (I remind you that modern IT equipment is not made on radio tubes at all, from the word in general), now it’s not at all. Because we were blocked from supplying even the prepaid chips of the long-suffering Elbrus. And we cannot do it ourselves, if someone does not know. Parallel imports are like vodka from under the counter during Prohibition: take what they give you exorbitant prices, don't like it, look for other places or sit hungry. This is not at all a reason for pride, but in general the opposite.

    Active work is underway to develop and improve the domestic Aurora OS and create an ecosystem for it

    This one is sawn on the basis of imported Linux. This, which is already more than 1 billion rubles, is irretrievably unclear where things are going? For such money it was possible to develop a new one. It would be better if they wrote about the Neutrino OS. It is much more secure and modern than Linux.
