Russia fines Meta Platforms over 'LGBT propaganda', Ifax says
April 26 (Reuters) - A Russian court on Tuesday fined Meta Platforms Inc. (FB.O) 4 million roubles ($54,030) for failing to delete posts that contained what it calls "LGBT propaganda", the Interfax news agency reported.
A 2013 Russian law, decried by Western countries as state-enforced bigotry, bans the "promotion of non-traditional sexual relations to minors".
Meta did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
