Google paid a fine of 3 million rubles for not removing prohibited content


Google paid three million rubles for non-compliance with the requirements to remove prohibited information from search results. This was reported on the Roskomnadzor website. The agency clarifies that about 30% of links to content prohibited in Russia remain in Google search. The company has not yet commented on the situation and has not clarified whether it plans to fix the work of the search engine.

This is the third fine for violation of content filtering rules (Federal Law No. 149). The first one was discharged to the company in 2019 in the amount of 700 thousand rubles. In May 2020, for the same violation, Google was fined again – by 1.5 million rubles. In December 2020, a third fine was imposed.

On March 10, Roskomnadzor began to fight the dissemination of prohibited information on Twitter. The agency announced a slowdown in traffic on the platform due to the failure to delete illegal data. After that, users noticed failures at various sites, including the resources of government agencies. Roskomnadzor said that problems with the work of the websites of state structures arose due to a fire in the data center of Strasbourg and had nothing to do with Twitter.
