As a UK librarian who's been living in Russia for a few years, I have to say I've appreciated and regularly used Yandex, not as a search engine but as a useful one-stop shop for local weather, traffic, exchange rates and maps, presented in a way which doesn't tax my very limited Russian. It gets the Moscow weather right more often than anyone else does (not that that's saying a lot), and there have also been times when the Yandex maps were more accurate than the Google maps, particlarly when it comes to the bizarre naming system of Moscow streets. Google got me lost, Yandex got me unlost. Not disagreeing with your comments on its search facility, just saying it does work as a local portal.
