I haven’t seen a lot of it on talk pages, but that’s not because it’s not discussed, but because I don’t look at the Russian Wikipedia as often as I should :/

It definitely is discussed on the Wikimedian Telegram groups in Russian, and it was also mentioned several times at the Wikimedia Conference in Moscow last September.
