Russia Freezes Google Assets

Moscow’s Court of Arbitration has frozen the assets of the Russian subsidiary of Google to the tune of 500 million rubles ($6.6 million).

The judge ruled in favor of Russia’s ‘Entertainment Television’, which sued the tech giant after YouTube blocked one of its channels, according to the Interfax news agency.

The plaintiff demanded that Google restore full access to the TNT channel’s account or else pay a penalty.

Apart from Google’s Russian subsidiary, American Google LLC as well as; Google Ireland Limited and Google Commerce Limited were all named as defendants in the court documents.

The presiding judge, Ekaterina Titova, deemed Entertainment Television’s demands reasonable; pointing out that the channel would likely incur “considerable losses” unless Google’s assets were frozen.

On April 13, the court rejected Entertainment Television’s first claim, lodged two days prior; in which the company demanded that all funds and property belonging to Google’s Russian subsidiary, totaling one billion rubles, be frozen.

The preliminary court hearing in this case is slated for June 1.

In mid-March, the same Court of Arbitration ruled in favor of another Russian channel, ‘Tsargrad’; which had also been blocked by YouTube. Google was ordered to pay the company one billion rubles.

Since the start of Russia’s military offensive against its neighbor in late February; YouTube has blocked channels belonging to several Russian state-funded media outlets, including RT
