MOSCOW, August 3. /TASS/. Novaya Gazeta’s legal representatives have agreed to meet Rosneft in court. The oil producer declared its intention to file a lawsuit against the newspaper, saying this is "the only feasible and civilized way of settling disputes," the newspaper said on its website on Wednesday.
"We would like to note that Novaya Gazeta’s editorial board has made a preliminary request for the information, the response was received and published. We cannot comment on Rosneft’s claims because they are unofficial statements of intent so far. Novaya Gazeta is ready to clarify its position once it receives the plaintiff’s statement of claim," the newspaper said.
Rosneft’s representatives said yesterday they plan to sue Novaya Gazeta, Rain TV and other mass media outlets for publicizing material that contain untrustworthy information, calling it a smear campaign "orchestrated in mass media against Rosneft and its management." Rosneft’s claim against Novaya Gazeta is related to a recent article dubbed "The Secret of Princess Olga", which alleges that Rosneft CEO, Igor Sechin might be linked to one of world’s most luxurious and expensive yachts.
