Wikimedia Foundation fined over two articles on the war in Ukraine

Wikimedia Foundation was fined over two articles in Russian discussing Russian invasion of Ukraine.

A Russian court issued a 2 million roubles (US$32,600) fine against Wikimedia Foundation, Wikipedia’s owner, over two articles in Russian about the war in Ukraine. The articles in question were about the evaluations of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the Ukrainian civilian population’s non-violent resistance during the Russian invasion. The head of Wikimedia’s Russian chapter anticipates an increase in such cases against the Foundation.
