You got it from RussianFedora-fixes repo:

 chromium                 x86_64   1:56.0.2924.87-1.fc24.R  russianfedora-fixes-updates  31 M
 chromium-libs           x86_64   1:56.0.2924.87-1.fc24.R  russianfedora-fixes-updates  43 M
 chromium-libs-media-freeworld x86_64 1:56.0.2924.87-1.fc24.R  russianfedora-fixes-updates 2.1 M
