In April of this year, Russia's Federal Antimonopoly Service fined Apple $12 Million for abusing its dominant position in the mobile applications market. Today we're learning that Russia has opened an antitrust case against Apple for failing to allow app developers to tell customers about alternative payment options when using its App Store platform, Russia’s anti-monopoly regulator said on Wednesday.
