    The European Commission is expected to file antitrust accusations linked to online shopping service against the US giant Google as early as in July, media reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The EU fiscal police suspects Google of using its dominance to push forward its own service in the shopping market, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing a source familiar with the situation.

    The European Commission has not provided any comments so far, the media outlet added.

    The European Commission's investigation into Google was launched in November 2010 and although the sides reached a compromise in February 2014, it reopened the antitrust case seven months later following new allegations against the company's practices.

    In April 2016, the European Commission accused Google of antitrust offenses as it abused its dominant position by imposing restrictions on smartphones with Android OS.
