Rostelecom sues internet providers for ignoring government web blacklist
The providers, separately headquartered in Moscow, Saratov and the Sverdlovsk region, have been fined $1,000 each by the Supreme Arbitration Court. The court's rulings were passed down earlier this week, RIA Novosti reports.
Rostelecom successfully proved that each of the three telecom companies failed to download the blacklist of websites from the Russian government . As a result, the internet service providers were found guilty of "violating the terms of a license for entrepreneurial activity," according to RIA Novosti.
The lawsuits did not specify whether or not the three companies also failed to restrict the public's access to the websites.
