Google sued for suspended internet services
Google just got sued by a resident of Sevastopol in Crimea, a region which acceded to Russia from Ukraine last year. Sevastopol’s Leninsky district court accepted the claim given by Dmitry Mishin who stated that the internet giant incorrectly implemented the US president’s executive order when it suspended certain services in Sevastopol. Mishin demands restoration of the operation of his Google Play on his cell phone which is a moral damage of 10,000 ($161) roubles and a fine on Google for 5,000 roubles ($80.5). Mishin who is an IT lawyer, has explained that he has decided to clarify the grounds for introducing US technology sanctions on the territory of Crimea. According to the court official website, it is stated that the first court hearing is scheduled for March. Mishin has said that Sevastopol was never been mentioned in the executive order rather it only focused on Crimea. Mishin in the beginning had demanded Google to restore its services in Sevastopol, in which they refused to fulfill his demands. Thereby, he further decided to sue the company.
