Russia’s antimonopoly watchdog has ordered Google Inc. to rectify its antitrust law violations, potentially paving the way for a hefty fine and helping local search engine Yandex NV.
The agency gave Google a deadline of Nov. 18 to stop its practice of bundling—pre-loading its own apps and services to give them priority over rivals on its Android mobile operating system.
The regulator also said it had initiated an administrative case against Google, meaning the search giant may face a fine of up to 15% of the 2014 revenue from the preloaded apps if found guilty.
