It is shown that the comments of Gabuda and Kozlova [Phys. Rev. A 79, 056501 (2009)] are in conflict with their earlier work, where they stated that there is no indication of the structural distortions in PtF6. In their original publication they also stated that qualitative electrostatic considerations suggest that the electronic 5 d4 configuration remains spin paired as the ground state in the octahedral field.
