MOSCOW, September 15. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian state entities have reduced purchases of Microsoft Windows operating systems to seven orders in July-August from 31 orders in the same period of 2013, the Association of Electronic Trading Platforms (AETP) said Monday.

“The fall in the volume of state orders of Windows operating systems may be linked to the aggravation of relations between Russia and the West. We would like to remind that Russia’s Communications and Mass Media Ministry is studying an option to completely substitute software imports in the coming five to seven years,” the AETP said.

In April-June, the number of state purchases of Windows systems doubled on the year, the association added. “The increased purchasing activity could have been provoked by the steps of Microsoft, which stopped supporting Windows XP in April.
