Dzhugashvili vs. Novaya Gazeta

In September 2009 Dzhugashvili made international headlines when he sued the Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta, after the magazine published an article claiming his grandfather personally signed execution orders against civilians.[1] On October 13, 2009, the Russian court rejected Dzhugashvili's case, stating that its reasons would be made public at a later date.[2] Dzhugasvili was given five days to appeal.
