The Deputy Prime Minister also noted the implementation of a set of measures provided for by the national technology initiative:

The prospects for the development of blockchain in Russia were previously announced by Nikolai Gadzhiev, Chairman of the Commission on Blockchain Technologies and Crypto-Economy “Investment Russia”. In an interview with BeInCrypto, Hajiyev said that Russia has “great potential for IT developers.”.

Benefit not for everyone
At the same time, in the banking sector, the implementation of blockchain projects is met with more loyalty. In early August, Russian banking institutions noted an improvement in providing businesses with additional government support measures using blockchain from the Federal Tax Service of Russia.
However, apart from banks, not everyone could feel the effectiveness of blockchain technology. In early July, for example, the Russian Council of Shopping Centers (RSTC) announced that a quarter of all shopping centers could eventually close if the government does not allow deferring tax payments for 2020.
“The industry has not received any subsidies or compensation from the state for the lost rental income, and the consideration of all proposals to support the industry invariably ends with refusals,” said Oleg Voitsekhovsky, managing director of the RSTC in an interview with RBC..
