Update: One of our forum members, Santrega, attempted to get an answer on the battle.net forums about whether Chris Sigaty meant that the beta in general or just the beta in Russia has been pushed to 2010. Xordiah, Blizzard's RTS Community Manager for Europe, confirmed that he was referring to the entire beta:

He was talking about beta in general and not specifically about a Russian beta.

starcraft 2 igromir

IgroMir is a large three-day Russian games expo at which StarCraft II was playable and a panel on it was presented. Goha.ru summarized a Q&A with Chris Sigaty, StarCraft II's lead producer, confirming that the beta has been pushed back to 2010. Click here for the google translation of the Q&A, but note that it is largely a rehash of the information from BlizzCon 2009. According to VG247, StarCraft II is still set to be released in the first half of 2010, though rhetoric has now shifted to the second quarter of 2010.

There will be official interviews and panel reveals on the Blizzard IgroMir Website at a later time. The schedule of the event has been posted as well:

Friday, November 6
11:30 – 12:00 – World of Warcraft Panel
14:30 – 15:00 – SC II: Hotstreak
15:00 – 15:30 – World of Warcraft: Cataclysm leveling contest
16:00 – 16:30 - SC II Panel
17:00 – 17:30 – SC II: Hotstreak
17:30 – 18:00 – World of Warcraft: Cataclysm leveling contest

15:00 – 15:30 – World of Warcraft: Cataclysm leveling contest

17:30 – 18:00 – World of Warcraft: Cataclysm leveling contest

"SC II: Hotstreak" are simply StarCraft II touraments from what we can deduce.

SC2TV has taken a few photos of StarCraft II. See them in our IgroMir forum thread, along with some StarCraft II gameplay impressions from several players.

There is also a small gameplay video of standard base-building:
