“Apple imposed on Russian iOS app developers the need to use the company’s payment tool in their apps,” the service said in a statement.

It is noted that the rules of the App Store forbade developers of iOS applications to inform customers about the possibility of paying for purchases outside the App Store, as well as the use of alternative payment methods.

In September, Moscow's Tagansky Court dismissed an appeal filed by Apple Inc., which was found guilty of refusing to localize Russians' data in Russia.
