Hmm ... not sure if you're being sarcastic. (?)
If not, then I consider myself in esteemed company. I moved my email so it's now hosted by Mail.ru. (Domain held separately.)
I did a little Googling* and saw that Putin has been critical of Yandex but not Mail.ru. (Quite harshly, in fact.)
And historically, he's not on the best of terms with the individuals leading Yandex, but seems amicable with those of Mail.ru.
Also, Mail.ru's email is scanned by Kaspersky, which I find is often singled-out / ridiculed by mainstream western media. That just makes me trust them more.
I moved for what I presume are the same reasons as yourself:
my email may be read daily** by a government department, but at least I know it won't be knowingly / willingly shared with my own government.
My private life is none of their business. Indeed, THEY need to better expose themselves to the voting public.
Oh, and vent, my friend. Vent!
* Don't know if this is sinister, but while Googling for instructions on how to host my email with Mail.ru, Yandex appeared at the top of the search results. Yandex also appears for other queries specifically targeted at Mail.ru.
** I pity the person who reads my email. It's really quite mundane. Nevertheless, it's mine.
