MP V. Baloga vs. the newspaper “Panorama” (Mukachevo, the Zakarpatska oblast)
Representatives of the Association of the workers of mass media state that MP V. Baloga more then once tried to destroy the Mukachevo district newspaper “Panorama” trying to take away illegally the office of the newspaper. The interference of law-enforcing organs and court restored justice. V. Baloga made peace with the editorial board and gave some money to the newspaper as a partial compensation of the capital repair. Yet, the MP is restless: he again handed the claim again “Panorama” on recompensing the allegedly inflicted moral damage equal to 20 thousand hryvnas.
