It is unacceptable to use foreign software if Russian analogue is available believes Russian prime-minister

The Russian government has taken a course towards to import substitution. It relates to different types of industry including software which is used in state authorities. Russian prime minister is persuaded it is unacceptable when the foreign software is exploited in state authorities when its Russian analogues are available and sometimes at lower costs.

If the functional characteristics of Russian software are similar to the functions of foreign, exploited at the expense of state budget, it is not justifiable to use foreign programs, believes prime minister. Russian state authorities acquire Russian software more often than in previous years. The Russian software should be also fixed and adjusted in a case if it conflicts with foreign software after its installation.
