Yandex Teams Up With Rival

The country's most popular search engine Yandex said Thursday that it has entered into a partnership with domestic rival Rambler for search and advertising services.

Yandex, which raised $1.4 billion in a blockbuster initial public offering on NASDAQ in May, said the deal will see Rambler adopt its search engine and join Yandex's Ad Network, allowing advertisers on Yandex.Direct to broaden their target audience and attract new customers. The company did not disclose financial details of the deal.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
