Draft Bill no. 89417-6, passed by the lower house of Russia's parliament, has raised of a lot of argument.
Vodka, caviar, balalaika, matryoshka nesting dolls, Putin, Medvedev, Yuri Milner and Yandex - how much more do Western professionals know about Russia and its Internet industry?
Alas, very little.
With TheRunet, we hope to change this situation for the better. Our aim is to introduce international readers to most recent developments in the Russian-speaking sector of the Internet, with its rapidly growing number of users, eCommerse and advertising market, innovative startups, major deals and more Russian players entering European, American and Asian web markets.
Today, when Russian giants such as Yandex and Mail.ru Group are among the largest companies in Europe, we see a great interest in Russian Internet business in the West, but we also see a great shortage of information on the subject.
TheRunet is a blog dedicated to news and analysis on the Russian Internet Industry. Every day, we will bring you news on Russian companies, current research data and commentary from the leading experts.
We hope that the blog will prove useful to professionals from Paris to Hong Kong, from Dublin to San Francisco, to those representing large international corporations or small startup businesses, to investors, business angels, media managers and journalists.
Our experience in Russia includes organizing major professional events, such as the Russian Internet Week and managing popular publishing projects, such as The Internet in Numbers magazine. So, if you are interested in Russia's Internet business, you've clicked the right link: www.TheRunet.com!
