Sites ceased to exist
- Narod - http://narod.ru/
- Blogosphere Yandex - http://ya.ru/
- Google Questions and Answers
- Orkut, Google's social network - https://orkut.google.com/
- Files mail.ru - http://files.mail.ru/
SiftedThere are global sites that seemed reliable, but they themselves "put out" to put it mildly:
- Myspace - was the leading social network and it seemed like forever - myspace.com, now trying to be a musical social network.
- Rambler - was the main portal with the leading search engine in runet, the main mail, ICQ ... - www.rambler.ru
But someday there will come a day when they see that it has become economically impractical.
Then the price rises or the service stops operating.
