TikTok, owned by Beijing-based IT company ByteDance, was fined 3 million rubles ($51,000) by the Tagansky District Court in Moscow.

According to Russian news agencies, the case against TikTok was based on allegations that the company „promotes non-traditional values, LGBT, feminism and a distorted representation of traditional sexual values” on its platform.

Twitch, owned by Amazon, was fined 4 million rubles ($68,000), the court said. According to the press agencies, the case refers to Twitch’s hosting of an interview with Oleksiy Arestovich, adviser to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
