Looking at the most recent copy of 
ftp://ftp.ripe.net/ripe/dbase/split/ripe.db.inetnum.gz  I see 40,557 
registrations with a status of "LEGACY".

Very much a curate's egg, I'm afraid. There are some countries doing very well 
but a whole lot more that have trouble measuring any IPv6 deployment. Google's 
map shows this graphically:

Looking at https://www.ripe.net/membership/indices/RU.html  I count 1,455 RIPE 
NCC members who are either based in Russia or state that they provide 
registration services there. I make no claims as to how open or otherwise the 
Russian market is but it seems to have a fairly large number of participants.

Kind regards,
