Claim of the Chernivtsy oblast directorate of education and science against the newspaper “Chernivtsy-CITY-plus”
The agency “Ukrinform” communicates that the representatives of the Chernivtsy oblast directorate of education and science estimated the moral damage, which was allegedly inflicted to their reputation by the publication of an article by Vasiliy Zabrodskiy in the newspaper “Chernivtsy-CITY-plus”, at 90 million 750 thousand hryvnas. The publication contained the information about the incompetence of the oblast officials of the education sphere. The method of calculating the compensation sum appeared to be rather original: the representatives of the directorate multiplied the minimal recompensing sum, which is stipulated by the Civil-Procedural Code (820 UAH), by the run of the newspaper. One of the demands of the claimant is to sequestrate the accounts of all organizations, where journalist Vasiliy Zabrodskiy works. The matter concerns the entire media holding “CITY” headed by Vasiliy Zabrodskiy. The holding includes two TV companies, one radio station and the newspaper “Chernivtsy-CITY-plus”.
