- A Russian court on Thursday fined Snapchat owner SNAP 1 million roubles ($16,667) for an alleged refusal to localise Russian user data on the country's territory, the Interfax agency reported.

Moscow has clashed with Big Tech over content, censorship, data and local representation in a simmering dispute that has erupted into a full-on battle since Russia sent its armed forces into Ukraine on Feb. 24.

Snap did immediately respond to a request for comment.
