According to a theinquierer.net 2016 saw a large increase in these kind of attacks.
Ransomware has evolved fast since 2013, and the number of attacks quintupled during 2016 alone.

Yet as Simon Shuster suggests that ‘despite rave revues from Russian officials, critics deplored the release of “Eugene Onegin: Devil’s Mercy”, which sought to provide a lesson in literature by rendering the hero of Alexander
Pushkin’s masterpiece as a zombie killer’ (2010). Shuster quotes Alexei Pastushenko, a spokesman for 1C-Softclub, a Russian game developer working closely with the government, who acknowledged, ‘of course if you want to pull in gamers, patriotism doesn’t cut it’ (2010).

A Russian Software Billionaire Takes on SAP and Oracle: June 14, 2017
The economic downturn of 2014 kick-started sales among bigger customers, who sought to cut costs just as a drop in the ruble made imports more expensive and President Vladimir Putin urged companies to replace foreign technology with homegrown products. In recent years, as his software has gotten more sophisticated, Nuraliev has begun serving clients such as the Russian Post, units of energy giant Gazprom PJSC, and local affiliates of Daimler, Ford Motor, and Siemens—putting him in direct competition with giants such as SAP AG and Oracle Corp. “Now, when large firms need to report to the government on whether they’ve replaced imported technology, it’s become trendy to say, ‘Yes, we use 1C,’ ” Nuraliev says.

1C has grown into a leading videogame publisher in Eastern and Central Europe since being founded 20 years ago. Acquisitions in the past two years have led to the formation of parent firm 1C-Softclub Corporation.
The company, which focuses on games for play on personal computers but also makes titles for consoles, reported revenue of more than $300 million (US) last year.
“The Russian government puts a lot of money and effort into developing high tech industries,” said consul general Vladimir Vinokurov, noting a visit to Silicon Valley last year by Russian president Dmitry Medvedev.
“1C’s videogames are popular in Russia and we hope they will be popular in the United States too.”
On April 28, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko introduced sanctions against a number of Russian companies, including the hugely popular social network Vkontakte and the near-indispensable accounting software developer 1C.
Most ransomware is spreading via email and unpatched software, but researchers have now found a variant that uses the accounting software 1C to infect systems. The Russian software 1C Company is the developer of the same accounting software.
