Naughty American Corporation Google and the Russian Roskomnadzor, which in mid-December 2018 put her a fine of 500 thousand rubles.

The decision of the American Corporation in the air NSN commented the head of information-analytical Agency TelecomDaily Denis Kuskov, who said that Google is simply unprofitable to quarrel with Russia.
“Google and Apple are two industrial IT company who are actively working on the Russian market and earn a very good cash reward, and withdrawal from the market for them is not the correct way, said the Pieces. — So they went to pay the fine and to work further on St. Petersburg, Moscow and regional markets. It is unlikely that the Roskomnadzor will be a nightmare to Google for the reason that it is quite a strong company, world holding. Just want to lead to position-specific activities in the Russian market”.
