SEVASTOPOL, April 9. /TASS/. A Russian district court on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit filed by a resident of Sevastopol, Dmitry Mishin, against internet giant Google.
Mishin stated in his claim that the search engine giant had incorrectly implemented the US president’s executive order when it suspended certain services in Sevastopol, a Russian federal city on the Crimean peninsula.
He demanded restoration of the operation of his Google Play on his cell phone which is a moral damage of $190 and a fine on Google for $90.
Mishin, who is an IT lawyer, explained that he had decided to clarify the grounds for introducing US technology sanctions on the territory of Crimea. He said that Sevastopol was always considered a separate administrative division and had never been mentioned in the executive order rather it only focused on Crimea.
The court in Sevastopol on Thursday announced only the operative part of the judgement without giving any reasons for the decision. Because of the difficulty of the case, the final judgement is not likely to be delivered until April 25.
