Russia   A minimum fine of 500,000 rubles (7,500 U.S. dollars) has been imposed
"A minimum fine of 500,000 rubles (7,500 U.S. dollars) has been imposed on Google," it said in a statement.

Roskomnadzor has repeatedly asked the search engine operator to connect with the Federal State Information System, which contains a list of banned Internet pages and, in accordance with Russian law, excludes links to such pages.

According to the statement, Google did not comply, and was therefore given the fine, which has an upper limit of 700,000 rubles (10,500 dollars).
