Russia Fines Wikipedia Owner Over 'Fake Information' About Ukraine Invasion

A Moscow court on April 13 fined the Wikimedia Foundation, owner of the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, 2 million rubles ($24,525) for failing to remove what the court termed "fake information" about Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Interfax reported. The Wikimedia Foundation has been hit with a string of fines as Moscow pursues a drive to crack down on independent sources of information. Wikimedia has previously said information that Russian authorities have complained about was well-sourced and in line with Wikipedia standards.
