Russia on Tuesday fined TikTok for failing to delete content that violates Russian laws on ‘LGBT propaganda’ and streaming service Twitch for hosting a video interview with a Ukrainian political figure that Moscow said contained ‘fake’ information. Neither company immediately responded to a Reuters request for comment. Interfax reported that a TikTok representative in the courtroom had insisted the proceedings be terminated, without giving further details. The fines mark the latest step in Moscow’s long-running dispute with Big Tech, with penalties over content, demands over data storage and some outright bans.
