MOSCOW, February 28. /TASS/. Google approached the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) with a proposal to make a settlement, the regulator said on Tuesday.

"The request was received yesterday [on February 27]. Conditions of the settlement have not been discussed yet," FAS said.

The next review of the case is scheduled to March 27, a FAS representative said. No prompt comment has been received from Google.

In September 2015, the Federal Antimonopoly Service 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 the ruling and appealed to the court.
