MOSCOW, September 13. /TASS/. Deadline for enforcing Google regulation should not be moved, Head of the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) Igor Artemyev said on Tuesday.
"I believe that we should not move it. They had more than enough time," Artemyev said, adding that FAS will fine Google for failure to comply with regulations in time.
"If the requirement is not met, a non-compliance penalty will be set, starting from 500,000 rubles ($7.721) and then it double. We will fine as much as necessary for non-compliance with the regulations, until they are fulfilled," Artemyev said.
On September 2, FAS received a request from Google for extension of deadline for fulfilling the service’s orders. "The Service will consider the appeal of the company in due course," FAS press service quoted Head of FAS Department for Regulation of Communications and Information Technologies Elena Zaeva said.
FAS said earlier that one more fine might be imposed on Google if the corporation fails to meet the directive of the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) to cure violations of antimonopoly laws.
