he Press Service of the Civil Court of the Taganka District of Moscow issued a news on the 2nd, saying that Twitter was fined 2.4 million rubles (4.23 Million Singapore dollars).

On the same day, the court sentenced Twitter to pay a fine of 3.3 million rubles and 3.2 million rubles in two other cases for the same reason, and the total fines imposed in one day reached 8.9 million rubles,

According to RIA Novosti, it is unclear whether Twitter has decided to appeal. According to the Interfax news agency, the court will also hear three other similar administrative violation records involving Google.

In March of this year, the Russian Federal Telecommunications, Information Technology and Mass Media Supervision Bureau announced that it had reduced the speed of access to Twitter because it did not delete illegal content. These violations include information calling for minors to commit suicide, child pornography, and drug use.

The Russian Federal Telecommunications, Information Technology and Mass Media Supervision Agency stated that if Twitter continues to ignore Russian legal requirements, it will continue to intervene until the site is blocked.

In addition, as early as 2019, Twitter was fined 4 million rubles by the Russian court for refusing to store user information and data in Russia.
