Facebook paid 4 million rubles for refusing to localize databases of Russians


The social network Facebook paid the fine imposed on it for non-compliance with Russian legislation. This was reported today by RIA Novosti, referring to information received from the press service of the Tagansky court of Moscow.

We are talking about non-compliance with the requirements for the localization of personal data of Russian users on servers in the Russian Federation. Violation of this law provides for an administrative fine ranging from 1 to 6 million rubles. In addition, the Internet service may be blocked in our country.

Back in February of this year, the Magistrates’ Court in Moscow imposed a fine of 4 million rubles on Facebook for non-compliance with these requirements. The same penalty was imposed on the microblogging service Twitter.

And now it is reported that Facebook has complied with the court order: “The fine was paid, the court received an order to end the enforcement proceedings“.

As for the Twitter service, it has previously appealed against the penalties. However, subsequently, the Tagansky Court of Moscow recognized as legal the appointment of a penalty of 4 million rubles for Twitter for refusing to localize the databases of Russians.
