MOSCOW A Russian court on Tuesday fined U.S. social media giant Facebook 21 million roubles ($288,000) for failing to delete content that Moscow deems illegal, the Tagansky District Court said.

The fines come amid a wider standoff between Russia and Big Tech, with Moscow seeking to force foreign firms to open offices in Russia and store Russians’ personal data on its territory.
