On July 14, Yandex.Taxi CEO Tigran Khudaverdyan told journalists  about the forthcoming unification of Yandex services with Uber in  Russia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia and Kazakhstan. It is  assumed that Khudaverdyan will head the new, unified company.

After the merger, both the Yandex.Taxi and Uber applications will  still be available for booking trips.  Drivers will be combined into  a single platform, which will allow them in one application to  receive orders from both Yandex.Taxi and Uber. The deal, as a result  of which a new company will appear, still has to undergo the approval  process of regulators.
