The study investigates the issue of managing the municipal infrastructure of cities by means of Smart City technologies on the example of the Russian Federation and proposes an adaptive approach to introduce the smart city policy in the country. The chosen topic is deemed relevant since yet no universal models for the implementation of SC ideas in Russia exist. The study presents the authors’ vision of the SC strategies closely related to the concept of sustainable development. Besides, the paper provides the SWOT analysis of the developed vision and reviews approaches for determining the level of readiness of Russian cities for the implementation of smart services. By means of the survey method, the study uncovered the main directions and residents’ preferences for the introduction of SC technologies in the cities of the Russian Federation. Apart from that, step-by-step recommendations for municipalities seeking to introduce smart initiatives were developed.
