Vladimir Putin instructed RF Government to create a site for testing unmanned ships and robotics on the Russky island

When speaking at the Eastern Economic Forum, Russian President Vladimir Putin told the Government create a site for testing unmanned ships and robotics on the Russky island.

“I instruct the Government to devise a special status for Russky Island. It must offer an enabling environment so that any research team or any group of enthusiasts can launch start-ups, make their ideas a reality and engage in innovative projects. In this environment they must be able to test the most advanced solutions before their practical or commercial use makes its way into laws, including in robotics, unmanned and sea transport, healthcare, biotechnology and the environment.

In addition to this, I propose establishing a Digital Development Centre on Russky Island as part of our programme to promote a digital economy. This centre could focus on software development, big data storage and transmission, as well as cyber security, and other spheres”, said the President.
