National state search service “Sputnik” has ceased its work, writes CNews. On the official site of “Sputnik” the search query string has disappeared. Now the main page of the portal is a link to other developments of the company, such as a corporate browser, an analytical system and a distribution kit for corporate search with machine learning. Sputnik was developed by Rostelecom in 2014. According to the publication, at least 2.26 billion rubles were invested in the service. In 2018, at the initiative of Rostelecom, the bankruptcy procedure for Sputnik was launched, the reason being millions in debts to the operator under a loan agreement. The court declared the company bankrupt.
