Russia

Four months after raising millions of dollars from a Russian investment fund, Groupon acquired a majority stake in Darberry.ru, a similar site based in Moscow. With the investment, Darberry was renamed Groupon Russia. The site currently serves seven cities in Russia, and 180,000 subscribers; flush with Groupon's investment, it intends to expand throughout the country and into neighboring Ukraine.
