Russia is planning to create its own quantum computer and it will reveal a road map for the project in early December, Director General of the Russian Quantum Center (RQC) Ruslan Yunusov told Tass on Thursday.

The RQC is working with Rosatom which has prepared around $380 million for the project. The center also cooperates with the National University of Science and Technology MISiS on the development of Russia's first quantum computer.

In September, Google claimed to have reached quantum supremacy with its Google AI Quantum as it said its quantum computer managed to solve a problem that would take an ordinary computer thousands of years.
