Russia’s media watchdog, Roskomnadzor, has fined Google for failing to filter traffic in accordance with strict Russian Internet laws.
Roskomnadzor said on July 18 that it fined Google 700,000 rubles ($11,000) for not complying with the laws.
According to the agency, the U.S.-based tech giant failed to censor content blacklisted by Roskomnadzor — a violation of a law introduced in July 2018 that requires online search engines to purge any hyperlinks to materials that are banned in Russia.
