 On February 5, 2013, MP from the Party of Regions Vitaly Zhuravskiy filed suit in the Bohunskiy District Court of Zhytomyr against TV Studio 1+1 and three websites, demanding rectification of information and moral damages totaling 300 thousand UAH, said, which has got a copy of the MP’s claim.

The defendants in the Zhuravskiy’s lawsuit on protection of his honor, dignity and business reputation, refutation of false information, and moral damages are: TRC "Studio 1 +1", Zhytomyrskiy Informatsiyny Portal Ltd. , chief editor of Zhytomyr web-site, and the chief editor of Argument website.

The MP indicates the specific materials that are the basis for non-pecuniary damage: TV program "Hroshi" (of 09/26/2012), and the materials on the web sites called "The fighter against slandering, Zhuravsky knows what he fears: corruption, models, alcoholism" and "The Zhytomyr MP is called womanizer and conformist".

Zhuravsky asks the court to declare the information, which was circulated about him by the above-mentioned media, false and degrading his honor, dignity and business reputation; to remove from the information from the Internet and publish a refutation; to recover moral damages in the amount of 300 thousand UAH. (200 thousand - with "Studio" 1 +1 ", 35 thousands from two Zhytomyr web-sites, and 30 thousands from Argument web-site).

"The steady spread of lies about me through the media undermines my authority, which I was building through all my life, degrades my honor, dignity and business reputation, forces voters to review their attitude towards me. I regularly have to justify to the citizens, with experiencing a great mental suffering. This all deteriorated my health, "- said Zhuravskiy in his lawsuit.

According to the MP, all the moneym which he can get as compensation for moral damages, will be transferred to a surgery of a Zhytomyr resident. "I ask to collect the money for a charitable fund, which will transfer it to the accounts of the Institute of Neurosurgery in Kyiv.

"I never pleaded with the media, although they used to write about me different things, but that's moved far beyond that. "Dirty" Internet publications became systematic after my speeches against medical mafia. They buy substandard medicines and medical equipment at inflated prices. I have written to the Attorney General and Minister of Internal Affairs about the medical mafia, which is located in Kyiv and Zhytomyr, and I do not intend to stop there, "- said Zhuravskiy to

Vitaly Zhuravsky was elected to Parliament by a majority district number 66 in the Zhytomyr region.

Zhuravsky is the author of the bill number 11013 on the criminalization of defamation, which was approved by Parliament in the first reading September 18, 2012, and was cancelled October 2 through public protests.
