In January 2014, VK's founder Pavel Durov sold his 12% stake in the company to the CEO of Megafon, which is controlled by Alisher Usmanov.
Following the deal, Usmanov and his allies controlled around 52% of the company.
Because the social network is the one most popular and highloaded sites in runet, its visits can be used to make DDo S attacks on smaller sites.
VK performed DDOS attacks on certain sites, making users' browsers send multiple requests to the target site without their consent.
In April 2014, Durov stated he had sold his stake in the company after "coming under increasing pressure" from federal law enforcement to hand over personal details of users who were members of a VK group dedicated to the Euromaidan protest movement.
On April 1, 2014, Durov submitted his resignation to the board; at first, due to the fact the company confirmed he had resigned, it was believed to be related to the Ukrainian crisis which started in February of the same year.
VK allows users to message each other publicly or privately, to create groups, public pages and events, share and tag images, audio and video, and to play browser-based games.
VK does not display its own advertising in the site's music or video sections, nor in the videos themselves.The court ruled that VK is not responsible for its users’ copyright violations, taking into account that both parties agreed with the technical possibility to identify the user who posted illegal content and who, consequently, must incur the liability.Another ruling early in 2012 went partially in favor of Gala Records (now Warner Music Russia), a recording studio, when the same court ordered VK to pay 00 for not being active enough in regard to copyrighted materials.Combined with Durov's personal 12% stake, this gave him 52% of the votes.while Lev Leviev sold his 8% share in the same deal, giving United Capital Partners 48% ownership.
