Passengers rarely search for information on the weather, and for pornography and sex services.

Well I guess it's pretty much a given as to why Russkies wouldn't bother searching for the weather. As for the other two subjects. Well phew/
Deacon Nicholas,

Yandex is a secular company, and doesn't have any discernible interest in fudging the numbers in religion's favor. The Yandex report itself (https://yandex.ru/company/researches/2017/metro) says: " . " -- "The popularity of several topics changes throughout the day. In the morning peak hour, people most often search for dream books and prayers."
Deacon Nicholas:
I really want to believe this, but this is so self-serving.
