Google Corporation was fined 500 thousand rubles for non-compliance with Russian law, as reports TASS. Alexander Zharov, the head of Roskomnadzor, was the first to announce the imposition of the fine. He added that the agency plans to monitor the company for compliance with Russian law.
"We will continue to enforce Russian law. I can announce that in the near future we will start the next administrative case against Google, " he said.
The reason for the fine is Google’s failure to connect to the FGIS with a list of sites blocked in Russia. In November, this was the reason for drawing up a protocol of an administrative offense, with a fine levied later on. Roskomnadzor stated that Google was notified of the need to connect to the registry several months ago. At that time, the service contacted the Russian division of the search engine, as well as its headquarters. But the reminder did not yield any results.
According to the requirements of the agency, search engine operators must exclude links to resources with illegal information from search results. To do this, they must connect to the federal state information system, which contains a list of banned Internet resources.
Roskomnadzor conducted a special meeting with representatives of Google, at which one of the managers of the corporation stated his agreement to follow the norms of the law. At the end of November, Google representatives were present at the drawing up a protocol of administrative offense, the company did not admit guilt.
