Anti-Monopoly Agency to Fine Google

The Federal Anti-Monopoly Service announced Tuesday that it intends to fine Google for purportedly violating Russian advertising laws.

The regulator has accused Google of advertising several types of medication without providing the legally necessary health warnings and instructions on how they should be taken.

Google has been ordered to stop advertising the pharmaceuticals in question —?  namely Kagotsel, Immunal, Immunal Plus C and Genferon Light Spray, all of which are used to either prevent flu or relieve flu symptoms — while the case is being put together.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
