Yandex's co-founder Ilya Segalovich died on Saturday at a hospital in London, the company's press service said on Sunday. He had been in a coma for some time and was on a life-support system.
Yesterday he was disconnected from a life support unit; the funeral planning arrangements indicate it will most likely be on Thursday, the company's representative Ochir Mandzhikov said.
Yandes is Russia's largest web search engine and was cofounded by Segalovich with Arkady Volozh. It tooks its name from the contraction of "Yet Another iNDEXer" (Voice of Russia, ITAR-TASS)
