Apple Paid Russia's Federal Anti-Monopoly Service Fine for what they claimed was Dominant Market Position Abuse

1 cover FAS

In mid-January, Patently Apple posted a report titled "The Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) has fined Apple for abusing its dominant market position regarding the App Store's payment rules."

Today, in a separate case, Reuters confirms that that Apple has paid the FAS a 906 million rouble ($12.12 million) fine.

The FAS determined in August 2020 that Apple had abused its dominant position, then issued a directive requiring Apple to remove provisions giving it the right to reject third-party apps from its App Store.

That move followed a complaint from cybersecurity company Kaspersky Lab, which had said a new version of its Safe Kids application had been declined by Apple's operating system.

While Apple appealed the decision at various stages, they ultimately complied with the order.

Apple paused all product sales in Russia a year ago, after Moscow dispatched its armed forces to Ukraine, and limited its Apple Pay service in Russia. For more, read the full Reuters report.
