Russian court imposed a new fine of 21 billion rubles on Google

The justice of the peace of the Tagansky district of Moscow today imposed a fine of more than 21 billion rubles on Google, the second fine for its intransigence in removing prohibited information.

The court pointed out that this fine was of the type determined by the volume of sales.

Judge Timur Fakhrameev announced the decision: “The imposition of an administrative fine in the amount of 21 billion 77 million 392 thousand 317 rubles 80 kopecks ($368 million)”.

A new case against the giant company was opened on June 22 for repeated refusal to remove prohibited information (part 5 of article 13.41 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation). Prior to this, the Russian Agency for Supervision of Communications and Information Technology Roskomnadzor sent 17 notifications to Google asking on its YouTube to remove unreliable information about the course of the military operation in Ukraine, since it discredits the reputation of the Russian army, but the company did not remove this information .

During the debate, the judge rejected 4 petitions of the company representative.
