The situation is serious. FAS started an Apple case. The apple corporation is charged with abuse of market position. She does not allow competitor apps on the App Store.
Interestingly, Kaspersky Lab filed a complaint against Apple. What happened said back in March. Then the iOS version of Kaspersky Safe Kids could not get into the App Store.

Apple refused to place Kaspersky Safe Kids in the store. Why? The company said that this software does not meet the requirements of the site.

As a result, Kaspersky Lab cut back on the program’s functionality. Otherwise, it was impossible to pass "censorship." Intervention deprived Kaspersky Safe Kids of meaning.
The mentioned software is intended for parental control. Apple in iOS 12 has a similar thing – Screen Time. Therefore, according to the Federal Antimonopoly Service, the novelty of Kaspersky Lab was rejected.
A similar attitude offended the creators of Kaspersky Safe Kids. They turned to the FAS for support. As you can see, the Russian department went to meet them.
