Moscow Commercial Court Declares Nezavisimaya Gazeta Publications about Transneft Operations Inaccurate

Date of publication: 1 November 2019

On 1 November 2019 a court hearing was held on the lawsuit of Transneft against the Editorial Office of Nezavisimaya Gazeta and its reporter O. Bondarenko regarding the protection of business reputation of Transneft and redress of the wrong.

The court ruled that the information published in June 2019 in the article “We’ll Compound: Truth about Contaminated Oil” both onto Nezavisimaya Gazeta’s Internet page and in the printed version of the newspaper, was at variance with facts.

The Court obliged the editorial office of Nezavisimaya Gazeta to publish a retraction of the disputed article on the website and in the printed newspaper, as well as to delete the disputed article from the publisher’s Internet page, within 5 days after the decision comes into force.

The Moscow Commercial Court ruled a joint imposition of a penalty on the editorial office in favour of Transneft in the amount of RUB 1.5 million as compensation of the immaterial damage to the Company’s reputation.
