In December 2021, the Tagansky District Court of Moscow imposed a turnover fine on Google in the amount of more than 7.2 billion rubles due to the company’s systematic failure to remove information prohibited in Russia. In May 2022, bailiffs forcibly collected this amount from the company. After that, Google announced its intention to challenge this fine.
Roskomnadzor warned last year that it would impose turnover fines against large IT companies for not removing prohibited content.
