MOSCOW, Oct 11 (PRIME) -- Common shares of Internet company Yandex lost 18.56% to 1,895.2 rubles as of 5.27 p.m. Moscow time due to a bill to limit foreign capital in significant information resources to 20% and a leak of personal data of its service, Yandex.Money, Freedom Finance analyst Yevgeny Mironyuk told PRIME on Friday.
