MOSCOW – Russia’s communications watchdog threatened on Thursday to fine Apple and Google unless they removed an app created by Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny from their stores, the Interfax news agency reported.

A Russian court declared the jailed opposition politician’s movement extremist this summer in a crackdown ahead of parliamentary elections later this month. Navalny’s allies want to use the app to organise a tactical voting campaign.
