Russia’s antitrust agency on Thursday said it had written to Apple, asking the United States tech giant to explain why Russian users of Apple devices do not have access to full functionality of banking and payment services.

Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service, FAS, has fined Apple around 26 million dollars in the last two years related to what it described as Apple’s abuse of its dominant position concerning the mobile apps market and in-app payments.

Apple has previously “respectfully disagreed” with a FAS ruling that Apple’s distribution of apps through its iOS operating system gave its own products a competitive advantage.

The FAS said most Russian banks had been removed from the App Store and that Apple was not letting users install apps from anywhere but the App Store, making it impossible for Russian banks and contactless services to function.
