Russia To Fine Wikipedia Over ‘False Information’

Russian communications regulator Roskomnadzor has demanded that Wikipedia remove “material with inaccurate information of public interest” about the situation in Ukraine.

The regulator accused Wikipedia of hosting false information on what Russia calls its “special operation” in Ukraine and on the actions of Russia’s military too.

According to Russian law, the owner of an Internet resource that does not delete illegal information when asked to do so by Roskomnadzor can be fined up to 4 million roubles ($48,120.30).
