    The Russian Federal Anti-monopoly Service said Tuesday that Google Inc. has paid all administrative fines imposed by the service.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US high-tech giant Google Inc. has paid all administrative fines, imposed by Russia's Federal Anti-monopoly Service (FAS) in connection with the anti-monopoly investigation, the FAS said on Tuesday.

    "Google Inc. paid all administrative fines imposed by the FAS Russia in the framework of the anti-monopoly investigation," the FAS said in a statement.

    The FAS said in April that it had entered into an amicable settlement with Google under which the US company would pay a core fine of 438 million rubles (some $7.8 mln) as well as two additional fines in a total amount of 1 mln rubles for failure to comply with FAS warrants.

    The FAS sought to fine Google for violating the country’s antitrust rules on the pre-installed mobile applications market in 2015.

    The violations included pre-installing a number of its apps along with Google Play, as well as precluding the installation of apps made by other companies. The case was launched after a complaint by Google’s local rival Yandex.
