"Yandex. Swing": hunting for the Internet giant or attempt to strengthen state control?


Stocks of search engine for several days have failed, have risen and again have sharply fallen. Rumors about purchase by Sberbank of a share in the company, and then an initiative of the State Duma to forbid foreigners to own more than 20% of the news aggregator could become the reason. What can it speak about? Photo: depositphotos.com What happens to "Yandex"? Stocks of the company at the end of the last week have failed, on Monday have gone up, and have again fallen in the evening. There is a chronology. Last Thursday, October 18, mass media have reported that Sberbank will buy 30% of "Yandex". The State Bank has disproved. But stocks of Internet giant at first have fallen on American Nasdaq, and on Friday falling has continued already at the Moscow Exchange. All "Yandex" has lost nearly 3 billion dollars of capitalization. On Monday new falling was prevented by "Yandex": the co-founder and the largest shareholder Arkady Volozh isn't going to leave the company and to sell the share. The markets were inspired, actions of "Yandex" have gone to growth, having won back about a third of the losses. But it lasted not for long. In the evening deputies have started talking. The State Duma wants to forbid foreigners to own more than 20% of the news aggregator. "Yandex" which has Yandex.News — it concerns directly. Stocks of the company have quickly lost the growth and have again gone to minus. What can all this speak about? Opinion of the CEO of Fund of national energy security Konstantin Simonov: Konstantin Simonov the CEO of National Energy Security Fund "Versions can be a little. Of course, the first which comes to mind at once is a continuation of history with "Yandex". There is, of course, a temptation to attribute activity of deputies to attempts to change share capital structure of "Yandex", but I personally think that after all here not hunting for "Yandex" is the reason of emergence of this bill more likely, and continuation of neither new, nor the first attempts of more rigid state regulation". The main competitor has "Yandex", Google, too there is a news aggregator, but it isn't entered in the corresponding register, so, under operation of the bill won't get, have reported in Roskomnadzor. Therefore there is a feeling that this document was written specially under "Yandex". The search engine ideally under him gets: the parent company is registered in the Netherlands, and Arkady Volozh has obtained citizenship of Malta not so long ago. On the one hand, in an initiative there is nothing strange. News aggregators have equated to mass media two years ago. And in the Russian media participation of foreigners is limited by law. But for some reason were engaged in aggregators right now when a talk on sale of "Yandex" has gone. Coincidence is possible, simple. And it is possible, in acceleration of process the role and the tragedy has played in Kerch after which the authorities have started talking that on the Internet there isn't enough useful content. But for a long time there is a work on increase in control. Exchange quotations, investment climate — to it the attention isn't paid, the director of the Center of politological researches of the Financial university Pavel Salin says.
