(MOSCOW) JUST IN: (Interfax) – A justice of the peace from Tagansky district has found Twitter guilty of yet another administrative offense, failure to remove calls for minors’ participation in the unsanctioned protests held in late January #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.05: To find the Twitter entity guilty of an administrative offense and to impose an administrative fine of 2.4 million rubles [over $31,000] as a penalty,” the justice of the peace said.

“Twitter fined 2.4-million rubles ($31,000) by justice of the peace on Friday for failure to remove minors in unsanctioned protests”


Earlier on Friday, the court found Twitter guilty of committing two similar administrative offenses on January 23 and January 24 and imposed fines of 3.2 million and 3.3 million rubles, respectively. Hence, the overall amount of fines imposed on Twitter by the court over failure to remove prohibited content has reached 8.9 million rubles (over $116,000).

The ruling says that the fines must be paid within 60 days of the date of the ruling’s entry into force. Hence, Twitter must pay the fines by mid-June unless the rulings are challenged.

Popular online platforms visited by hundreds of thousands of Russians each day bear great social responsibility, the press service for Russian telecoms regulator Roskomnadzor said, commenting on the rulings. “Not restricting access to unlawful information endangers the lives and health of users, especially children and adolescents,” it said.

“Care for user safety, the prompt removal of prohibited content, timely moderation of calls for socially dangerous and unlawful actions must, in the opinion of Roskomnadzor, be of the highest priority for the administrations of every Internet platform,” the press service said.

The court postponed until May 4 hearing three similar protocols regarding Facebook and Google LLC, in order to allow them to review their case files.
