Oleh Gromovyi, GENTLS managing partner, won the defamation case for the ex-Prime Minister of Ukraine Arsenii Yatseniuk. Information that Arsenii Yatseniuk allegedly bought 24 houses in Miami was posted on the Internet and later disseminated by the media. Arsenii Yatseniuk publicly denied this information and decided to defend his honor and dignity and approached GENTLS law firm for the protection of his rights and interests. ‘Such claims are usually filed by clients, whose business reputation is highly valued. It is quite easy to denigrate anyone, especially a politician or a businessman, in the modern information space. It is enough to post some fake information on a blog or a social network, and journalists will immediately pick it up and turn into the sensation. As a rule, the media does not check the veracity of such information, as the newsworthy occurrence plays the major role. Consequently, the loss of reputation is very high, and it is rather difficult to compensate it,’ Oleh Gromovyi said.
