The office of Google Russia after the arrest of the bank account cannot continue to work.

This was stated in the press service of the company.

“The arrest of the Google Russia bank account made it impossible for the operation of our Russian office, including the retention of employees and the payment of labor in Russia, the payment of suppliers and contractors, and the fulfillment of other financial obligations,” a company spokesman said.

At the same time, Google will continue to provide the opportunity to use free services for users from the Russian Federation, despite the intention of the Russian “daughter” to initiate its own bankruptcy. We are talking about services “search”, YouTube, Gmail, “Maps” and Google Play.

Earlier it became known that the Russian structure of Google intends to apply to the arbitration court with an application for recognition of its own bankruptcy. Since March 22, 2022, the company “predicts its own bankruptcy and the inability to fulfill financial obligations.”

Earlier, tech giant Google banned Russians from installing and updating their proprietary browser through the Google Play store. The interface gives an error “failed to install the application” and blocks any operations with the web browser.

Google also  banned developers in Russia from  updating and downloading paid apps on Google Play. Thus, only free applications remained available to owners of Android smartphones.
