Russia: Wikipedia should delete certain Ukraine info

The Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor) demanded on Friday from the Wikipedia administration to remove several materials related to Russia's special military operation in Ukraine.

According to the Roskomnadzor's press service, the two materials, published on Wikipedia's edition in English language, contained "false information about the goals and form of a special military operation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine, as well as attacks on the civilian population and civilian facilities." Roskomnadzor underlined that Wikipedia could be facing a fine of up to 4 million rubles or $67,500 for the non-removal of such materials.

Last month, a Russian court filed two reports against Wikimedia Foundation Inc. and Google for their refusal to remove misleading information about the special operation in Ukraine and content banned in Russia.
