February 11th, the District Administrative Court of Kyiv declared "inaction of the State Registration Service of Ukraine as illegal " which avoids registrating the National LGBT portal of Ukraine as an official news agency.
Besides "recognition of inaction" of the State Registeration Service, the Court ordered this authority to consider the plaintiff's registration statement, namely, "IA National LGBT portal Ukraine" as the subject of the informational activity in the manner and terms defined by law.
We would like you to recall that during the first court’s session the reason to delay the registration of the National LGBT portal Ukraine was considered. The State Registeration Service could not understand what acronym "LGBT" means during half a year, and this was the reason to write two applications to the National Expert Commission on Public Ethics.
