Russia fines Google 3 million roubles for failing to delete banned content

On Monday, a Moscow court fined Alphabet Inc.’s Google (GOOGL.O) 3 million rubles ($400,386) for not deleting content it deemed illegal. This was part of a larger dispute between Russia and America’s tech giant.

Russia threatened to penalize Google with a portion of its annual Russian turnover in October for failing to remove banned content from its search engine and YouTube. This was Moscow’s most aggressive move to curb foreign tech companies.

Google, which stated last month that it had paid more 32 million rubles in fines, didn’t immediately respond to a request.

Russia has issued small fines to U.S. technology companies this year. Roskomnadzor, the state communications regulator, has slowed down Twitter since March. It has also told Reuters that it will not lift restrictions on mobile devices until all illegal material is removed
