    The US tech giant Google faces additional fines if it fails to comply with the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service’s (FAS) decision within eight days, the FAS deputy head of transport and communications control said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – FAS fined Google an equivalent of $6.7 million for violating the mobile application market last week, setting the payment deadline at two weeks. Last September, FAS found the company in violation of a number of Russia’s anti-monopoly laws, including abuse of dominance on the pre-installed Android software applications market.

    "Google has eight days to carry out the FAS order in its entirety from the day of the court ruling. Otherwise, they face a new penalty," Elena Zayeva said in a statement.

    A Moscow court dismissed Google’s appeal earlier in the day in a market dispute that the sides failed to settle out of court.
