MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s state media regulator Roskomnadzor has filed administrative lawsuits in a Moscow court against Google and Meta, which could result in penalties for the tech companies’ annual revenue. America in Russia, the RIA news agency reported on Friday.
Roskomnadzor in October threatened both Alphabet’s Google and Meta’s Facebook with fines based on their annual revenue for repeatedly failing to remove content Moscow deemed illegal.
Moscow’s Tagansky District Court said both companies’ court dates were set for December 24.
Neither company immediately responded to a request for comment.
