Brief Description: Russian companies registry data is available to be searched via the website. This data is up to date, free, but limited by company name, it's unique registration number, address and short list of latest registration actions without details. It is also not possible to obtain data without inputting a search term, which restricts users from browsing the database freely. Any financial information is provided with fee or via commercial services. Most important issues: 1. No machine readable data 2. No bulk download 3. No open licenses 4. Data hidden behind captcha 5. Public information is very limited.

Comment: Nothing changed since 2014

Reviewer comments

It is not possible to browse through the database or access data without providing a search term, therefore the registry does not qualify for most of the criteria.
