Basically it says that Russian parliament is inviting Russian games industry professionals on March, 14 to talk about several topics:

1. Analyse investment climate in Russian games industry compared to other countries.

2. Discuss governmental and local investments into Russian games industry.

3. Create public panel (or committee) for investors in games industry.

4. Found an award for Russian games developers from Russian parliament’s Information Technology and Communications Committee.

Last time Russian Parliament invited press to talk about games, there happened a famous outcry from Mail.ru (known as My.com outside Russia) marketing director Mikhail Kochergin against Wargaming.net. Eventually this resulted in his termination from the company after one day of unsuccessful shenanigans.

This should be interesting.
