With the World Cup, Russia will be the center of the world in the upcoming weeks. This is a good opportunity to ask ourselves where Russia stands on digital markets.

The digital market of Russia has not yet been transformed into any major shape or form. Not in the sense that has seen the surge of the Chinese market, let alone of other industrialised economies. But Russia should nonetheless remain under scrutiny. Indeed, the digital days of Russia lie ahead, and Russia is expected to see tremendous growth in Internet and wireless services, way ahead of all other BRICS and even of advanced economies. Russia also stands out with a local Internet ecosystem and good progress around fiber.

This issue of our DigiWorld Watch service provides an overview of the digital markets and key players in Russia. It also examines how Russia is developing with an original model for digital market development.

This issue also includes a chronicle of the latest digital industry news as well as an update on what our teams are up to.
