MOSCOW, July 18 (RAPSI) – The communications agency Roskomnadzor on Thursday imposed a 700,000-ruble fine ($11,000) on Google company for failure to abide by Russian legislation, a statement released on the watchdog’s website reads.

The company has not connected to Russia’s registry of prohibited websites, according to the watchdog’s statement.

Russian legislation envisages that search engine operators must exclude links to prohibited websites from the search results. For this purpose, they must connect to the federal state information system with the list of prohibited websites.

Google representatives have been repeatedly warned of the law requirements and consequences.

In December, the company was fined 500,000 rubles for similar violations.
