Uber Technologies Inc. is speeding up the sale of its stake in a taxi joint-venture with Russian internet search company Yandex NV.

The ride-hailing giant will also remove Uber executives from the board of Yandex.Taxi, it said in a statement Monday. San Francisco-based Uber, which doesn’t hold any shares of the publicly traded Yandex entity, has a 29% stake in the venture that was valued at about $800 million at the end of 2021.
