Close to the company source reported that the reason for the dismissal of the employees was “information leak”. Representatives of “Yandex” has confirmed that “the decision on dismissal of the employees taken as a breach of NDA (non-disclosure agreement, info — Prim. Ed.)”.

Guys has warned bosses that the new version will fail. Fired people who thoroughly knew the old KP — these other in “Yandex” there are no more.
