Russian regulator says Facebook may have to pay 10 percent of its annual turnover if it does not delate what’s asked by Moscow.
Russian court said on Tuesday it has fined U.S. technology giants Google and Facebook Inc (FB.O) over a failure to delete content.
Russian commission gave Google 24 hours to delete more than 26,000 instances of what it's classifying as illegal content.
Twitter currently labels some Russian media "state-affiliated media", a move decried by Moscow.
Russia on Saturday accused the United States of using IT opportunities to engage in unfair competition and of social media platforms arbitrarily and indiscriminately censoring content.
