According to deal between Microsoft and Yandex:
Microsoft will deliver custom experience with local browsing and search capabilities through the Yandex search engine across Windows 10 devices distributed in the region. Windows 10 is free to people running genuine copies of Windows 7 and Windows 8 that upgrade in the first year.
In addition, the agreement between Microsoft and Yandex will introduce people in these regions to the advantages of Windows 10 through the Yandex index page, which will offer them a place to download and install the official Windows 10 experience. The Yandex feature page will also showcase the capabilities of Windows 10, and offer people a seamless way to obtain it.
