5.6.2021 | Russian Internet Commission give Google 24 hours to delete illegal content
According to Reuters, the country’s Roskomnadzor internet commission gave Google 24 hours to delete more than 26,000 instances of what it has classified as illegal content.
If Google doesn’t comply with the order, it could face fines valued up to 10 percent of its annual revenue, in addition to seeing its services slowed down within the country. The agency has also accused Google of censoring Russian media outlets, including state-owned entities like RT and Sputnik.
The agency said, “This censorship of Russian media and the targeted support for illegal protest activity actually speak to the political coloring of Google’s activities in Russia.”
