"Employees as they come, and others come on business trips to Russia", — said Zabrovskaya, stressing that it is as key and non-key employees of the Corporation.In the global office of Google Inc. at the time of publication of the material in the request is not answered.
As previously reported, Google banned its nonkey Americans to visit Russia without a special permit, issued by the legal Department of the company. This conclusion followed from the letter sent to the chief Google Evangelist Jamie Cacapon (Jaime Casap), the Russian organizers of one of the IT events this fall.
"All non-key Google employees can't go to Russia without the written permission of the head. Apparently, this is due to some legal acts of the Russian government against Google, that concern the company", – was said in the letter.We will remind, at the end of October 2016, the head of the FAS Igor Artemyev has threatened criminal liability of the managers of Google in case of default by the company, the directives issued by the Department in the antitrust case, open the Yandex complaint, and failure to pay finesassessed for failure to comply with these requirements.
