The official TASS agency reports that the court recognized Wikimedia accused of refusing to remove information banned in Russia. representative Wikimedia stated that the requirement to remove all articles is unreasonable and it suffices to add the opposite point of view, which is in line with the principles of free speech.

From the materials read out in court, it follows that the reason for the fine was seven articles or entries on Wikipedia, including those related to the military operation of the RF Armed Forces in Ukraine, the “events” in Bucha and the “destruction” of the maternity hospital and theater in Mariupol.

Ukraine accuses Russia of war crimes in the city of Bucha, where the bodies of 412 murdered citizens were found, some with traces of “torture and summary executions.” Several international media outlets have confirmed the horrific events in this town near Kyiv.

Russia has always denied these accusations.
