Come Firefox 3.1 Beta 3, which is currently expected early next month, Mozilla will say goodbye to Google for the Russian market. According to Harvey Anderson, VP and general counsel of Mozilla Corporation, Mozilla has divorced its open source browser from search partner Google in favor of a new marriage with Russian-based Yandex.

Just so we're clear:

“In October, we asked for feedback on creating a deeper partnership with Yandex, one in which we would make Yandex search features the default in our Firefox Russian language builds. Over the past few months, we have listened to feedback, talked with our localizers, studied the trends of our Firefox Yandex builds, and reviewed the Yandex user experience. All this activity led us to the conclusion that our Russian users really wanted direct access to the Yandex search services in official Firefox RU builds,” Anderson explained.
IOW, if you don't download a Russian language build, this will not affect you.

Nah, just the bold facing was good enough - I added the second paragraph as the entire paragraph was a quote from Harvey.
