On November 23, the consideration of the claim of the Tourism Development Center against the executive director of the Ural Tourism Association (UAT) Mikhail Maltsev is scheduled. The reason was the publication in the media about the allegedly ineffective work and "financial dishonesty of the leaders of the center."
According to 66. U Mikhail Maltsev, he believes that the situation with the lawsuit is pressure from officials, to whom the tourist trade community has questions, on the largest public association in the Russian Federation. “I am broadcasting a general industry position. I am very sorry that the Tourism Development Center, instead of doing normal professional work amid numerous failures, is distracted by looking for leads in order to steal my time, ”said the director of UAT.
Director of the Center Elmira Tukanova was unable to promptly comment on the situation, referring to being busy. She previously stated Ura. u that Mikhail Maltsev "unreasonably blames the Tourism Development Center and its leader." “In the latest publications about our institution in the media, he allowed himself unfounded accusations of embezzlement of state funds and ineffective activities. I believe that a person cannot allow himself to make such statements, since he does not possess facts, but presents information as truth, ”Tukanova commented on the situation.
Note that this is not the first lawsuit of the Tourism Development Center against Mikhail Maltsev. With a similar claim to declare Maltsev's statement defaming the business reputation, the Center applied to arbitration in 2017 and partially won the claim. The court demanded to remove from the article the statement that the Center employees allegedly sabotaged the Expotravel conference.
