The World Court of the Tagansky district of Moscow imposed a negotiable fine of 21 billion 77 million rubles on Google for refusing to remove prohibited content. This is reported by TASS with reference to a correspondent in the courtroom. As Interfax clarifies , this is about “inaccurate information about the course of the special operation” posted on YouTube.
This is the second turnover fine for Google. The first, in the amount of 7.2 billion rubles, was imposed in December 2021, also for refusing to remove prohibited information. It had to be paid by March 19th. In May, bailiffs opened a case against the company for the enforcement of a turnover fine. The company was also ordered to pay an additional 505 million rubles as an enforcement fee.
On June 16, 2021, the court fined Google 15 million rubles for refusing to localize the personal data of Russian users. In 2021, the company was already fined 3 million rubles for violating the localization requirement, and the fine was paid.
