In our IT-dedicated segment we look at Russia. As you may remember from one of our previous reports, in September the competition regulator ruled against Google over anti-trust issues.

This week the Moscow Arbitration court rejected the company’s appeal. Google’s actions, says the Federal Anti-monopoly Service, prevented other producers’ apps from being pre-installed on smartphones running Android.
