(TechRadar) – Russia isn’t happy about Apple and Google’s domination of the smartphone marketplace, and might be about to build its own operating system in response.

Russian Communications Minister Nikolai Nikiforov is said by local news organisation RBC to be in talks with Finnish company Jolla about creating an “independent” operating system based on the company’s Sailfish OS.

The plan would be to make the new operating system the most widely used in Russia, replacing iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry within a decade.
