Claim of the plant “Sokol” against the newspaper “Novy den”
The administration of the machine-building plant “Sokol” situated in Novaya Kakhovka (the Kherson oblast) demanded from the oblast weekly “Novy den” to recompense the damage to business reputation. The demanded sum was 1 million 270 thousand hryvnas. The plant also handed a similar claim against the newspaper “Delovye novosti” (Novaya Kakhovka).
By the way, the previous “record” compensation sum was also demanded from “Novy den”. One of the district officials demanded 500 thousand hryvnas from the editorial board for the insult of honor and dignity, but the journalists managed to prove the groundlessness of his arguments.
The new claim against the weekly was accepted by the Economic court of the Kherson oblast.
