Alexander Mikheev, CEO of the Association of Industry Professionals in Game Operation and Development (APRION), told the newspaper "Izvestia" that the start of a voluntary experiment to label games in the Russian market is planned for early fall. He did not specify an exact date but indicated that the initiative will begin no earlier than September 1.

According to "Izvestia," this is what the labeling will look like

According to Mikheev, the Russian Ministry of Economy has preliminarily approved seven descriptors. These warn about the presence of scenes of violence, fear, sex, as well as the presence of foul language, drugs, alcohol and smoking, and in-game purchases.

Currently, companies VK (on the VK Play and RuStore platforms), Lesta Games, Astrum Entertainment, and 1C Games are testing technological solutions for implementing the descriptors.
