Russian Court Imposes Heavy Fine on Google in Data Storage Case

Moscow: A Russian court has imposed a substantial fine on Google in the case related to the refusal to store user data on local servers.

According to international news agencies, a Moscow court has fined Google approximately 15 million rubles (around 164,000 dollars) for denying the storage of Russian users’ data on servers located in Russia.

It is noteworthy that disputes between Russia and Google are not new. Previously, conflicts have arisen between the Russian government and foreign technology companies regarding online content, censorship, data, and local representation.

In August, Google was ordered to pay a fine of 3 million rubles, approximately $32,800, for its failure to remove purportedly inaccurate information related to the conflict in Ukraine.

Similarly, Google has faced challenges in Russia, including unsuccessful attempts to remove online content deemed illegal and restrictions on access to some Russian media on YouTube. After the court’s imposed fine, Google has not yet responded to the sanctions.
