MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Moscow's Tagansky district court fined Google 3 million rubles ($41,010) for violating regulations on Russians' data localisation, court spokeswoman Zulfiya Gurinchuk told Sputnik on Thursday.
"Google LLC was found guilty of committing an administrative offence under part 8 of Article 13.11 of the Russian code of administrative offences. The company was sentenced to an administrative fine of 3 million rubles", Gurinchuk said.
The protocol was issued to Google for its non-fulfilment of the obligation to ensure recording, systematisation, accumulation, storage, clarification and retrieval of personal data of Russian citizens, using databases in the country.
