Russia said that, if Google does not remove the bonded content within 24 hours, then it will be fined 800,000 rubles and 4 million rubles.
Russia communication watchdog Roskomnadzor gave Google a 24-hour deferment on Monday. This delay was given to the company to remove the prohibited content. If Google is not able to do this, then Moscow will gradually reduce the company’s traffic across the country. Russia has already slowed down the American social network Twitter because the social media platform did not remove the ban content.
Russia said that, if Google does not remove the bonded content within 24 hours, then it will be fined 800,000 rubles and 4 million rubles. On the other hand, if Google does this again and again, it can be fined 10 percent of its total revenue.
Watchdog Roskomnadzor said that, he had made 26,000 calls to Google to remove harmful content. Russia wants Google to remove videos related to drugs and violence. According to the Internet rules, Gagool has kept many such links in the search results, which should have been removed. This includes terrorist organizations, pornographic photographs, online stores selling drugs.
Google has also been accused of not removing 20 percent to 30 percent of the banned links. Russia said it had sent another case to the court for “repeated failure to comply with this obligation”. Documents in the Moscow court showed earlier on Monday that Google was filing a court case on Roskomnadzor for the removal of banned content.
In recent months, Russia has stepped up efforts to consolidate control over online platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Russia backed out of threats to block Twitter, saying that the platform has removed most of the banned content and that the social media platform is ready to talk. In April, a Moscow court ordered the video-sharing app Tiktok to pay a fine after failing to remove content related to illegal protests.
