MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s anti-monopoly watchdog plans to fine South Korean electronic giant Samsung over the pricing of its smartphones, RIA news agency cited the watchdog as saying on Thursday.
The anti-monopoly watchdog said last month it had found Samsung’s Russian unit guilty of illegally supporting retail prices for its smartphones and tablets.
