Russia Sues Google Over Search Results
Russia is suing Google for violating a legal requirement after it had failed to remove certain search result entries and for not joining a state registry that lists websites banned by Moscow, the country’s tech regulator Roscomnadzor said last Monday.
A final decision on the case is scheduled next month. If found guilty, the search giant could be fined up to 700,000 roubles.
Russia currently only fines violators up to a few thousand dollars, but a proposal which suggests higher fines has already been prepared by Putin’s administration for the feedback of industry players.
