Russian watchdog again puts off decision on Google fine : RIA

MOSCOW (Reuters) - R



state competition watchdog has postponed a decision on a possible fine on Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) Google until May 31, RIA news agency reported on Wednesday. FAS, the watchdog, had been expected to discuss the fine on Wednesday after postponing a decisi

on in April but again put off the deci

sion following a request from the company, RIA quoted a FAS officia

l as saying. The regulator ruled last September that Google had broken the law by requiring pre-installatio

n of certain applications on mobile devices running on its Android operating


em, following a complaint by Russia’s Yandex (YNDX.O).
