Troubles for global technology giants seem far from over. Facing heat over new social media regulations across the world, search engine is slapped with a fine of 2 million roubles ($28,085)  from a Moscow court on Monday.

The tech major is fined for not deleting content that deems illegal, part of a wider dispute between Moscow and the US tech giant. Russia has also threatened to fine Google a percentage of its annual Russian turnover for repeatedly failing to delete banned content on its search engine and YouTube, in Moscow’s strongest move yet to rein in foreign tech firms.

Google has meanwhile, confirmed that Russian court ruling, but gave no additional comment. Last month Google and a Russian lawmaker said the company had paid more than 32 million roubles in previous fines.

Russia also fined messaging app Telegram 4 million roubles. Telegram did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Two other administrative cases against Google were postponed until November 29, the court said, in order for a Google representative to have more time to study the case materials.
