Russia slaps Google with MASSIVE turnover fine - up to $240mn

Google is facing an enormous bill from Russia’s comms regulator that will amount to between 5-20% of annual turnover in the country for repeated failure to remove banned content.

Google had failed to pay a previous fine of $458k from earlier this year, and is already facing a court ruling demanding they unlock a YouTube account of a sanctioned Russian businessman.

Last year Google turned over $1.2bn in Russia, meaning their new fine could reach $240mn.

FBI storms homes linked to Russian oligarch Deripaska

The FBI has conducted court-sanctioned raids on two homes belonging to relatives of Russian steel oligarch Oleg Deripaska - but not owned by him - in New York and DC Tuesday, his representative confirmed to RT.

Deripaska was sanctioned in 2018 for alleged money laundering, extortion and racketeering according to a press release, and sued the US over the ruling, before a federal judge dismissed the case in June. (NBC)

A court filing in the Cayman Islands indicates that Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort was allegedly paid $7.35mn by Deripaska for investment fund management fees.

MASKED XMAS? “Challenging” winter for UK, warns No.10, after nearly 50k infections Monday

Boris Johnson is keeping a “very close watch on the latest statistics” after the UK hit almost 50k infections Monday, the highest daily number for 3 months, as fears grow of the govt’s mask mandate, vaccine passport and home working “Plan B”.

Although No. 10 insisted there weren’t plans to reintroduce strict measures, the booster jab rollout has slowed as experts expect it will take until January to top up all at-risk age groups.

Officials reportedly claim Plan B will be implemented if hospitalizations top 1k a day; on Monday there were 915 NHS Covid hospital admissions.

Bill & Boris: UK Partners with Gates in £400MN Green Investment Package

Boris Johnson has announced a pricey tech partnership with Bill Gates for a so-called “green industrial revolution,” to cover costs Britain couldn't pay itself to meet climate commitments.

“We will only achieve our ambitious climate goals if we rapidly scale up new technologies in areas like green hydrogen and sustainable aviation fuels – technologies that seemed impossible just a few years ago,” the British PM gushed.

Alongside billionaire philanthropist Gates, the PM outlined a plan to deploy £400 million in investments in new green technologies, heralding the Microsoft founder’s cash as the key element in a development program that would otherwise be commercially unfeasible and thus too expensive.

NOT so cheap being "GREEN" then, Boris?
