Russia’s communications watchdog Roskomnadzor has fined Google 700,000 roubles (USD 11,100) on Thursday for failing to fulfil legal requirements to remove entries from its search results that Moscow believes contain illegal information.

According to the agency, the US-based tech giant failed to censor content blacklisted by Roskomnadzor – a violation of a law introduced in July 2018 that requires online search engines to purge any hyperlinks to materials that are banned in Russia.

 

Roskomnadzor, which informed Google about its intention to impose the fine in May for noncompliance with the law, said Google still allows access to one-third of the websites listed on Russia's register of banned websites.

It is the second fine Google has faced in Russia since the law was introduced.
