BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, Microsoft said that it managed to reach a settlement with the Kaspersky Lab regarding complaints filed in Russia. On Thursday, Kaspersky Lab said it would withdraw its complaints from the European Commission and German Federal Cartel Office (FCA).
"The Commission can confirm that a complaint regarding this issue has been withdrawn," the spokesperson said.
In November 2016, the Russian Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (FAS) launched a case against Microsoft after receiving a complaint from the Kaspersky Lab cybersecurity company. The FAS issued a warning to Microsoft in June about the unacceptability of setting up a discriminatory environment on the antivirus market. A month later, the FAS said it had been notified by the IT giant that it was implementing the necessary changes.
