Russian users can again buy the Microsoft 365 office suite in stores, which disappeared from sale at the end of March 2022.
The Izvestia publication spoke about the situation on the market. And we are talking specifically about the Microsoft package for Russia, because online retailers indicate that the key to the product can only be activated within the Russian Federation (with the exception of Crimea, Simferopol, LPR, DPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions). Representatives of the sellers also note that Microsoft has again begun to supply products to the Russian market, although there have been no official statements on this matter yet.
Microsoft software can again be found in AllSoft and Softline, which were official partners of the corporation before it suspended its work in Russia. However, other retailers also have Microsoft products.
Interestingly, Microsoft 365 is now about 20% cheaper than it was just before it went off the market in March. For example, the family package has fallen in price from 7400 to 5951 rubles. Softline also confirmed that the new licenses are official supplies from Microsoft.
