The Tagansky District Court in Moscow registered two protocols against Telegram, drawn up by Roskomnadzor, for refusing to remove materials promoting terrorist ideas justifying the activities of ISIS (an organization banned in the Russian Federation), as well as for failing to remove materials calling for mass unrest and false and socially significant information, including about SVO. Roskomnadzor informed RB.RU about this.

The consideration of the protocols is scheduled for July 8 and August 13.

“Article 13.41 of the Code of Administrative Offences of the Russian Federation provides for administrative liability in the form of a fine of up to 4 million rubles for violation of the procedure for restricting access to illegal information,” Roskomnadzor said.

The service noted that in May the Tagansky court fined Telegram 1 million rubles for failing to remove information whose distribution was prohibited in the territory of the Russian Federation and, in particular, materials justifying extremism and containing proposals for the sale of forged documents, as well as information about illegal financial activities.

In 2021, 2022 and 2023, 21 administrative offence reports were issued against Telegram for failure to remove unreliable socially significant information. The total fines amounted to 69 million rubles, of which 49 million rubles were paid, Roskomnadzor added.
