Subject The article considers the information and communication technologies in India, China, Russia and the USA.
Objectives The purpose of the study is to identify the priority country and areas of cooperation of Russia in the use of information and communication technologies.
Methods The study rests on the systems approach, using the cluster and neural network analysis.
Results The paper shows weak positions of India and China in the ICT Development Index ranking. Russia is closest to the USA. The cluster and neural network analysis of the projected growth rates of economic indicators of India, China, Russia and the USA revealed the most favorable strategic areas of cooperation: India, the USA and Russia; India, the USA and China. Russia can count on equal cooperation with either India or the USA. India, China and the USA take interest in Russia only in relation to possibilities of mobile cellular communication.
Conclusions Information and communication technologies are widely used in Russia, but they are based on foreign developments. To build an information-oriented society in Russia, it is necessary to establish foreign trade relations with the United States on high-tech products. This will increase the adaptability to streamlined manufacture of Russian firms and create incentives for China and India to develop relations with Russia.

Keywords: information-oriented society, information and communication technologies, cluster and neural network analysis, development strategy, digital economy
