At the beginning of 2020, the Tagansky District Court of Moscow fined Facebook and Twitter for 4,000,000 rubles each for violating Russian legislation on the protection of personal data under Part 8 of Art. 13.11 of the Code of Administrative Offenses – “Violation of the legislation of the Russian Federation in the field of personal data”. That is, for the operator’s failure to collect personal data, including via the Internet, under the legislation of the Russian Federation, the obligation to record, systematize, accumulate and store personal data of Russians using databases located in Russia.
Let me remind you that the essence of the conflict is precisely this: according to the law, companies are obliged to localize their user databases in Russia, that is, transfer the data of Russian users to the territory of the Russian Federation.
As reported today by the publication "Businessman", Referring to its own source close to Roskomnadzor, the companies did not comply with the court decision and did not pay fines on time. Let me remind you that Twitter appealed the court’s decision, but was refused, and the court’s decision regarding Facebook entered into force on March 14 this year. Companies were given 60 days to recently enforce the court decision.
According to the source of Kommersant, the executive documents on the collection of fines last week were transferred to the Federal Bailiff Service.
Representatives of the Federal Bailiff Service said they were not entitled to disseminate information about the enforcement proceedings, and the press services of Roskomnadzor, Facebook and Twitter did not respond to requests from journalists.
