“To recognize as unreliable and violating Ihor Kolomoisky’s personal non-property rights an information published on September 18, 2019, by lb.ua in an interview with Valeriya Gontareva titled ‘Valeriya Gontareva: ‘This whole team, they are not only bullying me, but they doing so brazenly and mocking me (…)’ the court said.
The court also ruled to recover in Kolomoisky’s favor court fees in the amount of UAH 2305.20 from Gorshenin Institute and Gontareva in equal shares.
