"Hromadske Radio" journalist lost appeals petition to Murayev and produced refutation
Journalist Iryna Romaliyska of “Hromadske radio” lost her appeal petition against the judgement of Holosiyivskyi district court of Kyiv as of March 17, 2017 made on the claim of MP and owner of the TV channel NewsOne Yevhen Murayev against her and “Hromadske radio” with a demand to refute the information. This was reported by “Detector media” with a reference to the journalist's Facebook post. “I lost the trial to Murayev. The court bound me to refute. Thank you for taking out his complaints concerning calling him Yevhen, not Yevgeniy [Ukrainian and Russian variants of the name - transl.], the journalist wrote. I was bound to make a refutation. I did as the court judged”. Murayev initiated a lawsuit against the journalist and the radio station in the autumn of 2016, demanding to refute information that he allegedly was visiting Russia in 2014 as a part of an MP group, and the channel owner was called "pro-Russian". The journalist had to refute the information about the visit of Murayev to Russia.
