Putin once presented Xi Jinping a Yota phone as a gift

Remember the Russian smartphone brand Yota which has cool dual-screen phones? It declared bankruptcy not long ago.

The Supreme Court of Cayman Island has agreed to a liquidation request last month and the company’s creditors have 21 days to establish their claims.
