Would you care to remind me exactly which Western property was confiscated by Putin Inc? It's been a few years already and my memory is a little hazy, but I am an avid reader of the world press and I simply don't think there were any. (Yukos, if you're thinking that, was not a Western company).
Anyway, closer to our topic, Russia is indeed another market where Google is not #1, despite years' worth of efforts. Should we expect something of the same nature there?
