Russia has accused the ex-Yukos structure of declassifying a $ 5 billion judgment. About it informs RBC with reference to the autonomous non-profit organization International Center for Legal Defense.
According to representatives of the Russian authorities, the announcement by Yukos Capital that Russia lost the dispute in Geneva violated the confidentiality regime of the proceedings. According to them, Russia now intends to demand the protection of its rights.
Earlier, State Duma deputy Yevgeny Fyodorov said that Russia would inevitably pay compensation in the YUKOS case. In the commentary, he noted that he does not know a single case when Moscow would refuse to comply with the request of foreign courts.
We are talking about the decision of international arbitration under the auspices of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague on the claim of the former shareholders of the oil company against the Russian government. The proceedings lasted eight years. The final amount of compensation was $ 5 billion.
The current lawsuit is not the last in a string of cases involving Yukos. In the main process, there is an amount ten times higher than the current one. The case of $ 50 billion (plus 7 billion in penalties) is being considered by the Supreme Court of the Netherlands.
