Russian Meta-level metauniverse may appear in 2025-2026 - Rostelecom
MOSCOW, September 19 - RIA Novosti/Prime. The Russian metauniverse, comparable to Western counterparts, may appear in 2025-2026, said Boris Glazkov, vice president for strategic initiatives at Rostelecom.
"I think we will see this in a matter of years. ... 2025-2026, expert assessment," Glazkov said, answering a question from journalists, when a metaverse will appear in Russia comparable to that of Meta (the company's activities are banned in Russia as extremist).
Also, after the discussion in the Federation Council of the legal aspects of the regulation of the metaverses, the top manager expressed the opinion that in the near future one should hardly expect the appearance of regulation in the field of metaverses at the legislative level in Russia.
“I don’t expect such initiatives related to regulation. Firstly, the subject is not mature enough, and, of course, the fact that legislators are looking at this is nice. But that this subject will now be directly regulated is not. The problem of creating domestic products is much more urgent We have prospects in certain niches, for example, in the creation of a virtual office and office software, like Microsoft ," Glazkov noted.
