Twitter challenges $60,000 fine for refusal to transfer servers to Russia

16:21 03/03/2020

MOSCOW, March 3 (RAPSI) – Moscow’s Tagansky District Court will consider an appeal filed by Twitter Inc. against a fine imposed on the company for refusal to place its servers in Russia on March 16, RAPSI has learnt from the court’s press service.

In mid-February, a magistrate court fined Twitter and Facebook 4 million rubles ($60,000) each for breaching of user data storage requirements.

In late January, Russian communications watchdog Roskomnadzor instituted administrative proceedings against Facebook and Twitter.

The proceedings were commenced as the companies failed to provide in time information on fulfilment of requirements on the localization of databases of Russian social media users on servers located in Russia, as stipulated by the Law On Personal Data.
