🇷🇺 The Skolkovo Innovation Center is a high technology business area at Mozhaysky District in Moscow, Russia. Although historically Russia has been successful with development of science and technology, its lack of entrepreneur spirit led to government intervention of patents and nonproliferation of Russian tech companies beyond the scope of regional service. As corporations and individuals become "residents" of the city, proposed projects and ideas receive financial assistance. Skolkovo was first announced in 2009 by then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Railway transport will be available via Belorussky Rail Terminal and Kiyevsky Rail Terminal. A link to Vnukovo International Airport is also planned.
The Moscow metropolitan area has a population of over 17,300,000 people. Skolkovo is situated south-west of the centre of Moscow.
