Wikipedia fights Russian order to remove Ukraine war information

The Wikimedia Foundation, which owns Wikipedia, has filed an appeal against a Moscow court's order that it take down information about the Russian invasion of Ukraine, saying that people have a right to know the facts of the war.


A Moscow court fined the Wikimedia Foundation 5 million roubles ($88,000) for not removing what it called "disinformation" from Russian-language Wikipedia articles about the war, such as "The Russian Invasion of Ukraine," "War Crimes during the Russian Invasion of Ukraine," and "Massacre in Bucha."
