The whole business took about 1.5 years of planning. “It is just what the ministers wanted to achieve a few years back.” Yandex is under threat of being overtaken. There are a lot of big technology businesses around.” Gorelkin states. Gorelkin is the committee head deputy. He has a lot of different data from the organization.

Yandex is more than just a business. It is a great one. Moreover, it is also an asset.”

Yandex is a Technology

“Yandex is one of the businesses’ largest champions in high technology and is a big business.” Peskov tells reporters. “It is crucial for everyone that the business will continue to progress in the country.” The search engine is a very admirable business, in and out of Russia. It has a dominant search engine and has the latest innovations. There is a lot of effort to go into great online businesses like food delivery. Different Western institutional investors hold it.

Therefore, the whole announcement covers an entire 1.5-year period. It is a decision to make a large-scale invasion of the whole of Ukraine. Thus, after the invasion, Russian lawmakers passed different measures. The measures are related to the news and war information. In the following weeks, Yandex had many search results for Russians. The search engine was under pressure to get search results. People from Russia searched for information in different news outlets.

However, as Russia invaded Ukraine, a lot of international businesses left the country. They sold off their assets on bad, unfavourable terms.
