MOSCOW, July 29. /TASS/. The Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) suspects Apple's coordinating role in setting prices in Russia for its products, Deputy Head of FAS Russia Andrey Tsarikovsky told journalists on Friday.
"Legal suit is in progress. We are not pleased with the situation, several years ago we had a similar case. However, this time we unfortunately see Apple's coordinating role. Wherever you go if you want to buy an iPhone, prices are the same everywhere. We consider this wrong," Tsarikovsky said.
FAS might bring Apple structures to the case if proceedings are initiated on price-fixing arrangement for iPhone in Russia, Tsarikovsky said earlier.
It was reported earlier that FAS begun inspections in respect of several Russian electronics retailers due to suspicions of price-fixing agreement in sales of latest iPhone models. According to FAS, there were reasons to believe that retailers did not determine iPhone prices independently.
The requests in regard to iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus pricing policy were sent to Euroset, Eldorado, Svyaznoy, re:Store, Technosila, Ozon.ru, Citilink, Mobiland, Megafon and Vimpelcom (Beeline brand), as well as to the official internet Apple store. The investigation was initiated in connection with the application of an individual.
