In recent times, Google has faced fines from many countries. Recently, the company was also fined heavily in Russia. A Moscow court has said it is fining Google 7.2 billion rubles (about Rs 735 crore) for failing to remove illegal content. This is the first major revenue-based fine of its kind in Russia. In a campaign this year, Russia has increased the pressure on large companies. This is being seen as an attempt by Russia to tighten control of the Internet. Critics say it threatens personal and corporate liberties. Facebook also paid 1.7 million rubles (about Rs 1.73 crore) in fines.
