MOSCOW, March 18. /TASS/. A Moscow resident has filed a one million ruble (some $15,000) lawsuit against Russian news aggregator Yandex citing negative news stories as a reason of his hair loss and health problems, his lawyer said on Friday.
"We have filed a lawsuit with Moscow’s Khamovniki court requesting the recovery of moral damages worth one million rubles," the lawyer said. "We are also asking Yandex to be more attentive when checking the headlines of the published news stories."
The lawyer said that his client, Roman Maslennikov, claims that he is suffering permanent stress and is losing his hair after reading negative news stories.
In late February, a group of Russian lawmakers submitted amendment to the law on mass media, proposing to oblige news aggregators, including Yandex, to verify any republished information.
