Search engines will notify users that Wikipedia is breaking the law


Such coercive measures were introduced by Roskomnadzor against the company Wikimedia Foundation, which owns the largest online encyclopedia. Search engines are now required to notify users that Wikipedia violates Russian law.

The reason was the Wikimedia Foundation’s removal of illegal and fake information from the pages of the encyclopedia. The taken measures will be effective until the violations are completely eliminated, the department notes.

In addition, an administrative fine of 5 million rubles was imposed on the company, as previously the Wikimedia Foundation was repeatedly prosecuted for a similar reason.
