MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Russian court on Tuesday rejected an appeal by Facebook owner Meta Platforms, saying the company had 60 days to pay a 2 billion rouble ($26 million) fine over its failure to delete content which Russia deems illegal, the court said.

Meta Platforms did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
