Yandex co-founder Ilya Segalovich alive but in coma

Volozh was the first to say that Segolovich was dead earlier, Vedomosti reports.

“We would like to explain our previous statement. We have found out that Illya is in coma and connected to a CPB pump. However, there are no signs of brain activity in him,” Volozh told journalists.

Ilya Segalovich was born in 1964. He invented the word Yandex with his schoolmate Arkady Volozh and created a system of searching for information on the Internet. Thus, he became a co-founder of the most popular Russian search-engine. He was technical director of Yandex in the last years of his life.
