MOSCOW, September 13The Presnensky Court of Moscow partially satisfied the claim of actor Danil Kozlovsky against the head of the “Federal Project for Security and Anti-Corruption” Vitaly Borodin for the protection of honor, dignity and business reputation, the court’s press service reported.
“The court partially satisfied the claim of Kozlovsky D.V. The information disseminated by Vitaly Borodin in his Telegram channel was found to be untrue and discrediting the honor, dignity and business reputation of the plaintiff,” said the agency’s interlocutor.
The court ordered Borodin to remove the defamatory information, publish a refutation and pay Kozlovsky one ruble.
Earlier, Borodin sent a statement to the Prosecutor General's Office with a request to check Kozlovsky for discrediting the RF Armed Forces. According to him, the artist left for the United States after the start of the SVO, and also spoke out against the special operation on his social networks.
Later, Kozlovsky denied his departure to the United States, stated that he does not have a second citizenship and continues to work at the Maly Drama Theater in St. Petersburg.
The artist also said that his lawyers had prepared a statement to the “competent authorities” with a request to verify the statements of Borodin and his organization. Kozlovsky assessed Borodin’s actions with the words “writing denunciations to the prosecutor’s office, snitching, organizing a witch hunt, practicing hatred,” calling it “a frenzy, from which no one’s life will become better.”
