The Moscow City Court overturned the decision of the court of a lower instance to recover from the writer Alexander Prokhanov 500 thousand rubles in favor of Makarevich. So far, only the resolution part of the decision has been announced. The motivational part will be announced later.
Andrei Makarevich filed a lawsuit on the protection of honor and dignity in connection with the publication of Prokhanov's article “Singers and scoundrels”. In this text, the journalist reported that the musician performed in the Ukrainian Slavyansk in a military unit, "inspiring" soldiers to kill civilians. Makarevich denied this allegation - the leader of the Time Machine spoke to the refugees in Svyatogorsk - and demanded that the court recover a million rubles from Prokhanov.
