Warning the search engine giant Google on Monday, Russia’s communications watchdog Roskomnadzor gave the Alphabet-owned company time of 24 hours in order to delete prohibited content and if failed to do so, the company will have to pay a fine. Moscow said this move is likely to eventually slow down the company’s traffic in the country.
In a statement issued on Monday, Roskomnadzor said “If (Google) does not restrict access to the banned information within 24 hours, it will be fined between 800,000 roubles and 4 million roubles.” It also said that the a repeat offense would be punishable by a fine of up to 10 per cent of the company’s total annual revenue. The watchdog further said that “The volume and timing of Google’s failure to remove (banned) content available in Russia is such that traffic slowdowns may be imposed on the company’s services.”
According to Roskomnadzor, they have sent more than 26,000 calls to the search engine company to take down illegal information, including videos containing information on drugs or violence.
