Google will stop licensing Android-smartphones of Russian brands

This is reported by the Mobile-Review website, citing its own sources. According to the journalist of the publication, in the future the list of restrictions on the use of Google services in Russia may be expanded.

It is reported that the revocation of the license has already affected two Russian brands (their names are not specified), which, in connection with this, will no longer be able to produce Android gadgets with pre-installed Google services (GMS). Previously, HUAWEI faced such a limitation, whose devices are now being released with their own application store.

“The US export law prohibits the provision of services to Russia, as well as the export, re-export or transfer of US-origin software and technology to Russia,” the source quoted the text of the notice received by the companies.

According to Mobile-Review, today the US Department of Commerce should clarify the list of export restrictions that affect smartphones from various companies. The journalist of the publication also suggests that in the future a similar ban may apply to smartphones of other brands intended for sale in Russia. It is worth noting that Google itself has not yet published an official statement on the termination of licensing.
