Moscow branch of the Russian Red Cross Society requires recovering RUB 170 million from 18 Ukrainian and American media on the claim for defamation.
This has been reported on the website of the Moscow branch of the Russian Red Cross Society.
According to the statement, the reason for the lawsuit became the media publications, which, according to the Moscow Red Cross representatives, altered the materials of the press conference of December 25 about the assistance of “humanitarian convoy” in Luhansk.
In addition, the Moscow branch of the Red Cross appealed to the prosecutor general of the Russian Federation and the Federal Supervision Agency for Information Technologies and Communications “with a request to restrict Internet access to the extremist resources of the indicated American and Ukrainian media”.
The organization appealed to the Russian Investigative Committee with a statement to initiate the criminal proceedings under the Part 2 of the Article 280 (public calls for extremist activities), the Part 2 of the Article 128 (defamation of character) and the Article 319 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
Complete list of the foreign media, which the Moscow Red Cross is going to sue, is published in the petition, posted on the organization’s website.
