Wikipedia, Google may be fined in Russia for 'fake' content

A Russian court filed two administrative reports against Wikimedia Foundation Inc. and Google for their refusal to remove content banned in Russia, as reported by Interfax on Friday. According to the report, Wikimedia and Google could face fines of up to 8 million rubles and 12 million rubles, respectively.

The claims against both websites are related to the refusal to remove misleading information about the special operation in Ukraine, calls for extremism against Russians, and "other issues."

Earlier, the Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media, requested Google LLC to immediately remove all "statements of threats" against Russian users from its services.
