Website “The Truth about Katyn”.

On December 10, 2010 the grandson of Stalin Ye.I. Dzhugashvili sent a lawsuit to the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation against the State Duma of the Russian Federation regarding the protection of honor and dignity of J.V. Stalin. The statement of claim is based on the fact of adoption of a resolution by the State Duma deputies on November 26, 2010 called “About the Katyn Tragedy and its Victims”. Plaintiff requests the Court to declare the statement “…the Katyn crime was committed on Stalin’s direct order” as being untrue and defamatory to the honor and dignity of J.V. Stalin. The plaintiff demands to oblige the State Duma to withdraw its declaration “About the Katyn Tragedy and its Victims” and to pay a compensation of 100 million rubles, and to distribute the collected amount jointly and severally among the 342 deputies of the State Duma, who voted for the adoption of the above resolution.
