MOSCOW, April 27 (Reuters) - Russia's Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) said on Tuesday it had fined U.S. tech giant Apple APPL.O more than $12 million for allegedly abusing its dominant position on the market.

The FAS said Apple's distribution of mobile applications through its iOS operating system had resulted in giving its own products a competitive advantage.
