Yandex Search is a Google rival, aimed at the Russian public. With an English to Russian translation feature, it works well enough, but is no match for the big arch nemesis.
Searches work well enough, and you can forage via images and videos too. You can sort your results in the ususal way, via web, images, videos, etc, and there's also an English to Russian translation function.
The app is aimed at Russian speakers only. It's ok, but no match for Google.
