A Russian court imposed a fine of 2.6 million rubles ($ 34,000) on the social network for creating and sharing videos TikTok for failing to remove information about the protests in favor of the jailed opponent Alexéi Navalni in the month of January.
According to information provided by the Interfax news agency, a Moscow court found the Chinese social network guilty of “an administrative offense for failing to remove information that urged adolescents to participate in unauthorized protests.“
In addition, the court was also going to analyze two alleged infractions against the Russian social network Telegram for a similar infraction. However, it was postponed due to the absence of the parties, according to the agency, Ría Nóvosti.
It should be noted that the Russian telecommunications regulator, Roskomnadzor, said that it was going to impose fines on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, for non-compliance with the regulations in that country. It was known that Kontakte and Odnoklassniki (similar to Facebook) will also be sanctioned.
