An exciting future for Uber and Yandex
By Pierre-Dimitri Gore-Coty
Below is an email sent today to Uber employees from Pierre-Dimitri Gore-Coty, head of Uber’s business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Just three and a half years ago, Uber officially launched in Moscow. It was the start of an incredible journey which has seen us build, from scratch, a business that spans 16 cities in Russia and five cities in Azerbaijan, Belarus and Kazakhstan.
Today I’m excited to announce we are taking the next step in our mission to ensure everyone in these countries can get a reliable ride at the touch of a button.
As I just discussed with the local team in Moscow, Uber and Yandex have entered into an agreement to form a new company which combines our Rides and EATS businesses in Russia, Azerbaijan, Belarus and Kazakhstan, as well as Armenia and Georgia where we currently do not operate. This is an exciting opportunity in a unique situation and our operations in other countries will not be affected.
