VELIKY NOVGOROD, September 19. /TASS/. The FAS analyses the ranking of answers in search systems Google and Yandex on the subject of pre-emptive placing its resources in the search, told reporters the head of the Department for the regulation of communications and information technologies of the FAS Elena zaeva.
“The information we gave the final all subjects of the market a few days ago. Google extended the deadline requirements. We are exploring, we continue to explore. The European Commission, please note how many years the business is looking”, she said.
At the end of June the European Commission fined Google €2,42 billion for abuse of dominant position in the search engine market of the European Union. According to the EC, the results of the search products through Google distorted in favor of its own service Google Shopping. To increase the number of customers of this service, the ratings of competing projects was significantly underestimated, with the result that their proposals were not given on the first page of the search.
Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly service has recognized the Google guilty, but in another case concerning the app stores. The head of FAS Igor Artemyev has not excluded the institution of proceedings against the company by analogy with the case in the EU.
