This is integration with government services, integration with consular services, integration with the information services of TASS, which is our partner. This is very important for us, because compatriots want to receive prompt and comprehensive information about what is happening here. It will be targeted for them in some way. Different educational opportunities will be selected," Primakov said.

According to him, the service will be an ecosystem where multimedia products will also be available.

"These are Russian citizens with a passport who found themselves abroad, and people who do not possess Russian citizenship. People who went there on their own for some reason. People who found themselves abroad without expecting it themselves, because in 1991 our common homeland ceased to exist. They all have some interest in preserving ties with Russia," he said.
