The number of orders placed on the e-commerce platform more than doubled to 465 million during the year, the company said. Losses rose 2% to RUB 58.2 billion.

Ozon is Russia's second-largest online retailer, behind privately-owned Wildberries. The company is currently appealing a decision by the U.S. NASDAQ exchange to de-list its shares, which have not traded on the American bourse since February 2022, days after Russia ordered tens of thousands of troops into Ukraine and the West hit Moscow with an unprecedented package of economic sanctions.
