Russian officials said that Google had abused its dominant market position with Android, its mobile operating system, by favoring the company's own services over those of rivals, including Yandex.
Unlike in other parts of the world, where Google has outmuscled its search rivals, Yandex still holds more than a 50 percent market share in Russian online search, according to industry statistics.
Google could face a fine of up to 15 percent of the income it has made from the sector in Russia over the past year. ■
