Former owner of Russian Forbes drops lawsuit against ex-magazine editor
MOSCOW, October 1 (RAPSI) – Former owner of Russian Forbes Alexander Fedotov has dropped a defamation lawsuit against the magazine’s editorial director Nikolay Uskov, RAPSI correspondent reports from the courtroom.
A representative of Fedotov preferred not to disclose the motives for this decision.
Earlier, a spokesperson of the Ostankinsky District Court of Moscow told RAPSI that the plaintiff filed the claim because of an interview published on the website of Dozhd TV channel. Fedotov asked the court to recognize the information contained in the interview as untrue and defaming.
In June, AGMG publishing house announced that Uskov was removed from the position of the magazine’s chief editor.
In late August, businessman Magomed Musayev became a new owner of Russian Forbes. Back then Uskov also returned to the magazine on a new position of its editorial director.
