Google’s Russian subsidiary is planning to file for bankruptcy. The U.S. tech firm said that Russian authorities had seized the unit’s bank account. Alphabet’s Google has been under pressure in Russia for months as Moscow wanted content it viewed as illegal to be deleted. It was also criticized in the country for restricting access to some Russian media on YouTube. So far, the Kremlin has so far stopped short of blocking access to its platform. Google said that it had become impossible for its Russian office to function after its bank account was seized by authorities. It also published a notice of the unit’s intention to file for bankruptcy. Google has halted the majority of its commercial operations in Russia since February.
