Head of the group of companies “Ricky” Julia Nemchina said that the licenses for the programs needed to create cartoons expire this summer. While the equipment is enough for the next couple of years of stable operation.
RBC reports that almost all Russian animation companies actively use foreign software in their production. Now representatives of this sphere hope that the Ministry of Digital Development will help find a solution. As for the equipment, Riki purchased it back in 2021 at the time when they planned to increase production volumes.
It should be noted that the Riki group of companies is the creator of Smeshariki, Fixiki, Malyshariki, Tim and Tom and other animated short and full-length films.
