The judge obliged Lebedev to refute statements broadcast by the radio station about Luzhkov's possible involvement in the theft of public funds.

Additionally, the court ordered Lebedev to pay Luzhkov 80,000 rubles ($2,645) in compensation. The claims against the radio station have not been satisfied.

Luzhkov demanded the refutation of the information broadcast on June 21-22 on the "U-turn" and "Dura Lex" programs where Lebedev was a guest. According to Luzhkov's attorney, "Lebedev spoke about the theft of public finds by Luzhkov, who reasonably took offense."

The former mayor also requested 50,000 rubles ($1,650) from the businessman and 20,000 rubles ($660) from the radio station.
