Google may get off lucky by paying a minimal penalty if it meets the provisions of Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service, the head of the regulator Igor Artemyev told reporters, Tass reported. Earlier FAS said that Google had violated the law on competition, following the complaint of the Yandex search engine and ordered the US company to remove violations before November 18. “They (Google-Tass) should decide whether they will defend themselves in court or not. If they suddenly tell us that they agree and will fulfill our requirements, it is a serious mitigating factor. According to the administrative code, in this case, the penalty will be minimal,” he said.
