MOSCOW, December 12. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) has brought one more action against Google due to the failure to enforce its regulation, the regulator’s representative Anna Orlova told TASS Monday.
"The penalty amount will be defined later, at the meeting of the commission," she said, adding that "the date of the commission meeting has not been settled yet."
Earlier FAS imposed the fine of 500,000 rubles ($7,826) for Google Inc. and Google Ireland Ltd. each over the failure to enforce its regulation fully and in due time. The US corporation is now disputing the penalties.
In September 2015, FAS ruled that Google Inc. and Google Ireland Ltd. had breached the competition protection law under the complaint of the Russian Internet company Yandex.
According to the regulator, Google obliged manufacturers of Android OS-based devices to pre-install its applications together with Android platform. FAS said that Google’s policy restricted installation of applications by other developers. Google did not agree with FAS decision and appealed to the court. On February 5, 2015, the Court brought Yandex as a third party in the case and decided to hold hearings behind closed doors. On March 14 of this year, the Moscow Arbitration Court dismissed the lawsuit Google filed against Russia’s FAS.
Google lodged a cassation appeal against the court judgement in favor of FAS regarding the case on abusing dominant position.
Head of Russia’s antimonopoly regulator Igor Artemyev also said earlier that the US company is delaying performance of the regulator’s order by its lawsuits.
