Poroshenko has filed a lawsuit against “Bi-bi-si” for libel
The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has filed a lawsuit against the British “bi-Bi-si” for libel. This writes The Telegraph.
The reason for litigation was the news that Poroshenko had paid for a meeting with Donald trump at least 400 thousand dollars. According to the Ukrainian leader, this information is “not true and has his dignity.”
Besides, according to the lawyers, the publication “caused damage to the reputation of Poroshenko, which is especially dangerous, because he is actively promoting in Ukraine anti-corruption steps”.
The BBC refused to publish a correction or apology, the material is available on the newspaper’s website. The meeting of the two presidents was held in June 2017.
In late January of this year, Poroshenko said that his relationship with his American counterpart Donald trump develop brilliantly.
