Moscow court fines Google, TikTok, Twitter for refusing to delete content
A Russian court on Thursday said it had fined Tiktok 1.5 million roubles ($20,425) over a failure to delete content Moscow deems illegal, part of a broader standoff between Moscow and big tech companies.
It also fined Google 3.5 million roubles, adding to the 6 million roubles in fines it received on Tuesday, Reuters reported.
Earlier, the Moscow court has fined Twitter 19 million rubles ($259,000) for failing to delete content Russia deems illegal. Twitter was also fined 8.9 million rubles in April.
On May 25, the Tagansky court also fined Facebook over its failure to delete content deemed by Moscow as illegal. The U.S.-based social network giant was told to pay 26 million rubles ($353,000).
