To quickly grasp the trend of the future, Russia will probably skip the development of 5G networks and switch to 6G from this point on.
It is expected that by 2025, the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology and the Institute of Radio-Manufacturing Science can receive about 501 million USD in support for research on the new 6G communication standard.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko has also asked ministries to provide additional funding for research and development in the field of 6G communications by August 1.

The project will include device development from prototype to commercial product, issues related to components and research into regulatory frameworks, electromagnetic safety for the new 6G network.

As part of the project, the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology and the Institute of Radio-Manufacturing Science have proposed to amend the roadmap for the development of the fifth-generation mobile communication network. The document developed by Rostec was approved in November 2020 at a cost of up to 3.51 billion USD.

However, Russia's goal seems quite high when the country is not even able to cover LTE network throughout the country. But Russia has decided to skip the 5G network and move towards the 6G network right now.

A local carrier VimpelCom also expressed skepticism about the prospect of developing 6G in Russia. VimpelCom said that, before thinking about 6G, this country needs to focus on expanding LTE bands to serve the people.

Currently, there are a number of companies that can provide consulting services or help develop 6G networks. Most are from Western countries. But besides that, Huawei or many other Chinese technology companies have been able to do this for a long time.

Russian analysts say that the country needs to study the direction of 6G in the most reasonable way. But before allocating a large budget for this, it is necessary to determine which countries and equipment manufacturers Russia will coordinate with to agree on technical standards and frequencies.
