The Russian Ministry of Digital Development has prepared an interesting bill, which provides for the allocation of money from the federal budget to the publishing house “Big Russian Encyclopedia” for the production and support of the “nationwide interactive encyclopedic portal.” As stated in the document, the government will subsidize not only rents and salaries, but also a number of other activities. Subscriptions for technical, reference and other literature, paid Internet resources and periodicals will be paid. The project will also subsidize the use of archival materials and photography in cultural institutions: theaters, museums and so on. It is planned to develop computer software, as well as an examination in the field of information technology. How much will the launch of this project in the end cost, has not yet been announced. It is worth noting that Alexander Visly, who then headed the Russian National Library, spoke about something like that 3 years ago. He claimed that a resource of this kind would become a digital analogue of the Great Russian Encyclopedia and would be able to compete with Wikipedia.
