Protection of honor & dignity

The protection of honor, dignity and goodwill is provided by two texts:  the Civil code and the Criminal code of the Russian Federation. Article 152 of the Civil code penalizes for spreading of falsified denigrating information about a person; slander and insult are criminally punishable under articles 129 and 130 of the Russian Criminal code.


In most cases offenders in this area are mass media publishing false and denigrating information in their periodicals. If the guilt is proven, judges prescribe to publish a refutation and pay moral damages to the victim.
