A Moscow court fined Google 2 million roubles ($28,085) on Monday for failing to delete content that Russia considers illegal, as part of a larger dispute between Moscow and the U.S. internet giant.
In Moscow’s boldest measure yet to rein in international tech corporations, Russia has threatened to pay Google a percentage of its annual Russian turnover for repeatedly failing to remove banned information from its search engine and YouTube.
Google confirmed the penalties on Monday but declined to disclose further. Last month, Google and a Russian lawmaker announced that the firm had paid earlier fines totaling more than 32 million roubles.
Telegram, a messaging app, was also fined 4 million roubles by Russia. A request for comment from Telegram was not immediately returned.
Two other administrative proceedings against Google were postponed until Nov. 29 to provide a Google official more time to review the case files, according to the court.
