State-run news agency RIA said on Friday, citing a Moscow court, that messaging app WhatsApp faces a maximum fine of 4 million roubles (51,500) after Russia accused it of failing to remove prohibited content. Although WhatsApp's parent company Meta was declared a "extremist" organization and barred from operating in Russia last year, the widely used IM software has never been challenged with legal action for failing to remove illegal content. What information WhatsApp has reportedly failed to destroy was not specified in the RIA article. It stated that the administrative lawsuit was brought by Roskomnadzor, the communications regulator.
