    Statement From BuzzFeed

    Joint statement by BuzzFeed, Inc., and Aleksej Gubarev

    The following statement was issued today by BuzzFeed, Inc., and Aleksej Gubarev:

    “Mr. Gubarev has decided to end his litigation against BuzzFeed over its publication of the dossier in January 2017. The federal court ruled that BuzzFeed had a right to publish the dossier because it was part of a government investigation, and Mr. Gubarev accepts that judgment."

    "At the time BuzzFeed published the dossier, it explained to readers that its allegations were unverified. Since then, BuzzFeed has not learned any information that would verify the allegations about Mr. Gubarev or the companies he headed.”
