MOSCOW, November 28 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow’s Tverskoi court will start considering on December 15 the complaint of a grandson of Stalin, Yevgeny Dzhugashvili, against the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation in demand of protection of honor and dignity, Yekaterina Ilyina, the court’s press secretary, told ltar-Tass on Monday.
“In his complaint Dzhugashvili asks the court to demand that the deputies disclaim their statement about his grandfather’s involvement in the case of the execution of Polish officers at Katyn,” she said.
In the plaintiff’s opinion, the statement of the State Duma “On the Katyn Tragedy and its Victims” is slanderous and insulting to Stalin. He refers, particularly, to the phrase: “The Katyn crime was committed on direct order of Stalin and other Soviet leaders.” Dzhugashvili holds that this statement is a lie and should be disclaimed.
It is indicated in the plea that the grandson of Stalin demands not only the denial of the information circulated but also compensation for damage.
