Apple pays $12.1 million fine in Russia for alleged app market abuse

Monday February 27, 2023. 07:20 PM , from Mac Daily News
Apple has paid a 906 million rouble ($12.12 million) fine in a Russian antitrust case alleging abuse of its dominance in the mobile apps market, Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) said on Monday.


Apple, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment, has previously “respectfully disagreed” with a FAS ruling that Apple’s distribution of apps through its iOS operating system gave its own products a competitive advantage.
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.
Apple had appealed the decision at various stages, but had been unsuccessful and ultimately complied with the order, the FAS said.
