A Russian law firm on Friday said it had recorded a claim against U.S. tech mammoth Apple looking for 90 million roubles ($1.28 million) in harms for shoppers influenced by Apple pulling back its installment benefit from Russia.

Apple did not promptly react to an ask for comment.

Law firm Chernyshov, Lukoyanov & Accomplices said Apple had damaged Russian consumers’ rights after the company confined the utilize of its built-in Apple Pay benefit on Walk 1 in reaction to Moscow sending troops into Ukraine.

The claim, which it said had been recorded with a Moscow court, is looking for 90 million roubles in harms, which it said included emolument for “moral damage” caused to citizens.

It too needs Apple to continue operation of Apple Pay administrations for Russian clients.

The full figure may rise as the law firm is still welcoming more claimants to connect the suit.

Senior Accomplice Konstantin Lukoyanov said Apple’s primary U.S. company had made the choice to suspend deals of Apple items and confine administrations advertised in Russia.

“Therefore, our lawsuit’s claims are directed firstly at the parent company and secondly at its subsidiary units,” he said in a declaration.

The law firm said Apple’s decision to halt Apple Pay services in Russia had reduced the functionality of its devices sold on the local market, thereby lowering their value, actions it said were unfair and discriminatory under Russian law.

The same law firm is seeking after a comparable claim against spilling company Netflix, which in Walk suspended its benefit in Russia.
