Mail.ru Group fined for refusing to divulge private correspondence

One of Russia’s top web companies, Mail.ru, said it has been fined around $15,000 for not handing over customer data to the country’s financial regulator. The regulator wanted to know who certain Mail.ru customers had been contacting during a set time period, but the web provider pointed to the Russian constitution, which protects private correspondence. Mail.ru said it will contest the fine in court.
