MOSCOW, September 21 (RAPSI) – The Moscow City Court on Tuesday upheld dismissal of the Moscow City Duma Communist lawmaker Pavel Tarasov’s defamation lawsuit against famous Russian TV and radio host Vladimir Solovyev, the court’s press service told RAPSI.

In February, Moscow’s Savelovsky District Court dismissed Tarasov’s lawsuit. The lawmaker demanded to recognize information about him distributed by Solovyev during one of his radio airs as false. The journalist accused the plaintiff of driving under the influence of alcohol, according to the claim.

Moreover, Tarasov sought for compensation of moral harm in the amount of 1 million rubles (about $14,000).
