MOSCOW, December 2. /TASS/. Moscow’s Timiryazevsky Court on Wednesday partially granted Russian Liberal Democratic Party (LDPR) leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky’s defamation lawsuit against former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev and the Ves Mir publishing house.
The reason for the lawsuit was Gorbachev’s book After the Kremlin published in 2014, in which he wrote that Zhirinovsky put forward extremist slogans and took part in a few provocations.
In line with the ruling, the court ordered to collect 6,300 rubles ($94) from Gorbachev as compensation for moral damage inflicted by the book’s distribution.
The court also obligated the publishing house to refute the phrases in the book that in 1993 at the elections to the State Duma, "most part of the voters voted for LDPR of Zhirinovsky who forwarded extremist slogans," as well as that in 1996 in Omsk, during a meeting with voters, an attack was made on Gorbachev, and that "Zhirinovsky’s LDPR had a hand in that provocation.".
