MOSCOW, March 6. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) schedules consideration of the case on Apple service maintenance in Russia to May 3, press service of the authority told TASS.
"The case consideration is fixed to May 3, 2017," the press service said.
Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service is confident that Apple will set up its service center in Russia by May 1, head of the service Igor Artemyev said.
"They will build this center; this is of utmost importance for us. We gave an order to them and I have no doubts they will comply… I am absolutely confident they will do so by May 1," Artemyev said.
FAS earlier issued a warning note in the service maintenance case to Apple Rus LLC, a Russian affiliate of Apple, and ordered to open an integrated service center in Russia by May 1.
The Russian antimonopoly regulator opened the case against Apple regarding the after-sales maintenance in December 2016. In particular, FAS received an application from a citizen who failed to replace a smartphone display in a service center as he was offered to replace the telephone by a new one.
FAS is already pursuing a case against Apple regarding coordination of prices for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models of smartphones, whose sales in Russia started in 2015.
