Nashi Loses Nemtsov Suit

A Moscow court on Monday threw out a 1 million ruble ($32,000) defamation lawsuit filed by the pro-Kremlin youth group Nashi against opposition politician Boris Nemtsov, Interfax reported.

Nashi filed the lawsuit in the Simonovsky District Court after Nemtsov accused the group of masterminding an attack on him when an unidentified person splashed him with ammonia in Sochi in March while he was running for mayor of the city.

Nashi will appeal the ruling, the group’s lawyer, Sergei Zhorin, told Interfax.
