Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko has won a lawsuit against the TV Broadcasting Company Studio 1+1, the press service of Kyiv City State Administration has said.
The lawsuit concerned the airing of the program Hroshi (Money) by Olekandr Dubinsky on the 1+1 TV channel. After the release of the program in August 2019, Klitschko and co-plaintiff Dmytro Bilotserkovets filed a lawsuit to protect honor, dignity and business reputation.
“As you remember, then a wide discrediting campaign was launched against me. And I declared that I would defend my honor and dignity in court. Therefore, I filed a lawsuit against the 1+1 TV channel, which threw mud at me. There is no talk of a restriction on freedom of speech,” Klitschko said.
Following the consideration of the lawsuit, the court satisfied it, obliging the 1+1 TV channel to refute the false information on the air of the program Hroshi. The court also ordered the Studio 1+1 to remove the program in which false information was made public from all information resources of the TV company and related social networks.

“We are planning to create a large amusement park and active recreation in the territory of Kyiv’s Hydropark. This is an area of almost 130 hectares, an island not far from the city center.

Klitschko noted the coziness and stylization of old times in Europa-park and said that such a park must appear in Kyiv.
“Everything is very interesting here: cozy, stylized as an old town with modern attractions, lots of interesting entertainment, and good nature. And for children there are locations not only for entertainment, but also with educational functions. In short, both children and their parents are happy here. I have been dreaming for a long time and I will do everything so that a similar park will appear in Kyiv,” he said.
Europa-park is the largest in Germany and the second most visited amusement park in Europe after Disneyland in Paris. Last year, Europa-park was visited by more than 6,000,000 people. They come here from Germany, France, Switzerland and other countries.
