Yandex stock plummets

If you use Yandex or other Russian email services you might want to consider an alternate backup plan, if for no other reason than they are all going to be struggling economically now that the sanctions are starting to hit and the ruble is crashing. The head of mail.ru has been personally sanctioned too. Yandex stock: https://markets.businessinsider.com/...n-putin-2022-2

There are numerous posts here praising Yandex email services. Maybe the admirers will learn their lesson. Or may be not ....

Trading in Yandex was halted yesterday on Nasdaq after the stock crashed. They may get delisted. https://www.barrons.com/articles/yan...ia-51646057103

Yandex announced they may not be able to pay their debts due to the sanctions. https://www.cnn.com/2022/03/04/tech/...ing/index.html

Using Yandex for years...its very good imho. I dont see how a war (which yandex has nothing to do with) can be stopped by not using an email service from Russia. Besides Yandex also has servers outside Russia.(as in Finland) They also have a HQ in the Netherlands at Schiphol airport in Amsterdam.

Mail.ru is another story....they are inclusively Russian and also totaly based in Russia.

I would be worried that they won't be able to continue operations due to economic collapse.

I don't use Mail.ru but, if I did, I would continue to do so.

I found no evidence of servers outside of RU. You can`t create accounts on yandex.eu, only yandex.com. Probably EU restriction.

Interesting hack attempt by Five Eyes.

I just typed in " yandex.eu"....got a webpage where you can make an Yandex ID (comes with email account).

https://passport.yandex.eu/registrat...5-0ad7bb73b203

I dont know if it matters...i am based in the EU (Netherlands) and did not use a VPN.

might add this what i found on Quora and on the net doing a search fwiw:

https://www.quora.com/Where-are-Yandex-servers-located

https://www.datacenter-forum.com/dat...newable-energy

The last article was from July 2021...so i guess thats still valid. So yes Yandex has a data center in Finland.

Ok, I can get to registration on yandex.eu from the Log In pop up.

I don't find quora reliable. The data-center article is good. I guess Russia is not doing renewable besides hydro.

Since Yandex is incorporated in Netherlands (probably for legal reasons), why didn't the company just move there or to Finland when the war started? Let Putin have the Russian business and Cozy Bear can run it.

More trouble for Yandex. Value has dropped from around $31 billion to about $7 billion. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...eeds-in-a-year

Well don't have stock on Yandex so not to much worried about this. I do have Yandex search as an option in Firefox.

I read that Firefox removed the option to use the Yandex search engine. https://www.pcmag.com/news/mozilla-r...s-from-firefox

They removed their provided search options for Yandex and Mail.ru.

At any rate, when I upgraded to the non-bug, virtue signal fix Firefox 98.0.1 Yandex was still there, it was not removed. I am guessing because it was selected as one of my alternate search engines. It is also possible I added it manually awhile back; which is what I would have done if they had removed it.
