Huawei to create over 1,000 jobs in Russia

Chinese tech giant Huawei said on Thursday it plans to create over 1,000 new jobs at its research and development (R&D) centers in Russia over the next five years.

"Huawei plans to recruit about 500 people for its local R&D centers by the end of the year," the smartphone maker's press service stated. "Over the course of the next five years, we plan to employ more than 1,000 new experts for R&D work," the company added. Huawei currently employs 400 people at its R&D center in Moscow and another 150 in St. Petersburg but stressed it plans to open three new R&D facilities in the country before the end of the year.

Last week, Huawei unveiled its new Linus-based operating system Harmony OS after its permission to use Google's Android operating system was put in jeopardy by the United States' decision to blacklist the Chinese firm earlier this year.
