Social media giants consistently penalised by courts for spreading what Russia considers ‘fake’ information

Google has been fined $41,000 in Rusland for not removing banned content from YouTube.

A Russies court also fined Twitter three million roubles, the same amount as Google, for not removing banned content from the social media platform, the Interfax news agency reported on Thursday.

The content banned in Russia that was shared on Twitter included instructions on how to make Molotov cocktails, Interfax reported citing the Russian court.

Russia also fined Google 11 million roubles ($137,763) earlier this month for not deleting what the Russian court called “fake” information concerning the Russian invasion of Oekraïne, a war effort the Russian state is referring to as a special military operation.

The court also claimed YouTube had failed to remove content produced by Ukrainian far-right groups, according to the Russian state-owned news agency TASS.

Moscow’s Tagansky District Court announced this month that they had found Google guilty of committing administrative violations, fining the company four and seven million roubles in separate cases, Reuters berig.

According to TASS, the fines were prompted by what Moscow thinks is the sharing of inaccurate figures of losses of Russian troops and civilian deaths and injuries in Ukraine, in addition to the posting of videos made by Ukrainian far-right organisations, including the nationalist Azov battalion.
