Google Said to Transfer Engineering Operations Out of Russia

Updated on

Google Inc. is transferring its engineering operations out of Russia, according to a person familiar with the matter, after the government adopted new rules requiring more data to be stored in the country.

Despite the shutdown, the Mountain View, California-based company plans to increase its business investment in Russia next year, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private. Google has made similar internal changes in other countries, including Sweden, Finland and Norway, the person said.
