MOSCOW, March 20. /TASS/. The Moscow City Court has upheld the complaint of the Moscow branch of the Red Cross against the ruling of a district court in Moscow, which refused to consider the organization’s defamation suit against 18 US and Ukrainian media outlets, said lawyer Igor Trunov, who is also the chairman of the Moscow Branch of the Red Cross.
"The Moscow City Court has upheld our appeal, ordering the Savyolovsky district court to consider the complaint," he said.
The lawsuit says that the system of humanitarian aid convoys for the population of southeastern Ukraine has caused a series of slanderous and false publications in the U.S. and Ukrainian media with a view of discrediting the legitimate assistance from Russia.
Trunov noted that US and Ukrainian media had unlawfully misinterpreted the reports on the December 25 news conference regarding the Moscow Red Cross convoy delivering aid to Luhansk. In doing so, they have committed a crime of an extremist and slanderous nature. According to Trunov, the Moscow Red Cross had held a linguistic expertise establishing the calls for extremist activity in the disputed publications.
By way of compensation, the plaintiff requests to recover from the defendants 170 million roubles in the interest of the Red Cross.
