Trumps from the Ministry of Justice: Russia appealed the court decision on billions of Yukos


The press service of the Russian Ministry of Justice announces an appeal against the decision of the ASN (Court of Appeal in The Hague (Netherlands)) in the Yukos case. Recall that we are talking about the decision of this court, which ordered the Russian state to pay shareholders $ 50 billion "plus $ 7 billion of accumulated interest."


It is reported that today, May 15, the Russian Federation sent a cassation appeal to the Supreme Court of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. In the complaint, Russia is demanding the cancellation of the decision of the Court of Appeal in the lawsuit by the Yukos majority.

Russia notes that the ASN actually ignored the facts of the plaintiffs violating anti-corruption standards, as well as “anti-laundering” international laws. In addition, Russia notes the proven fact of collusion and fictitious tendering of officials with former shareholders of the oil company. A statement was added on the facts of bribing officials who were responsible for the privatization of Yukos.
Of Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation:

Offshore "dummy companies" controlled by Russian citizens did not actually pay for YUKOS shares and, accordingly, did not make any contribution to the Russian economy. Under the management of Yukos, the former owners allowed tax evasion, illegal withdrawal of assets abroad, money laundering and other illegal actions.
In a cassation appeal, he indicates that at one time, representatives of oligarchic circles bribed the main witness in this high-profile case.

It is added that the Dutch arbitration judges were misled:

The plaintiffs were actually Russian oligarchs - beneficiaries of NK Yukos. The court presented irrefutable evidence of the relationship of Russian citizens with the plaintiffs. Therefore, plaintiffs cannot be recognized by foreign investors.

Recall that after the decision by the Court of Appeal in The Hague to pay $ 50 billion to the "shareholders", many experts were quick to declare that Russia "now will not be able to get away from having to pay." However, these experts clearly ran ahead. Litigation will continue. At the same time, the Ministry of Justice has important trump cards. One of them is the facts of violation of the law on money laundering by those who call themselves "foreign investors". And today this trump card has entered the big game with billions in bets.

          These faces do not even know where Syzran and its oil refineries are. The Syzran refinery during the WWII processed one million tons of oil into gasoline for the front. Heavy oil.

    At the same time, the Ministry of Justice has important trump cards.
    What kind of "trump cards" are we talking about, the code "West" plays "their own", and even a "speckled" deck

      What kind of "trump cards" are we talking about,

      Probably we are talking about those who allowed illegally privatizing the public domain at secured auctions. They are still at the trough, they know who brought to whom and how much, they know where there is documentary evidence.
      Probably the time has come to discover the truth in court. We know her from the court between Berezovsky and Abramovich, where all the scams and frauds were revealed. There Berezovsky lost and was sent to the country of "eternal hunting" as unnecessary.
      Here, the question is still open.

    That's right! When they privatized “by pull”, they bribed officials — they were “respected people.” How they became uncomfortable, they took the company away. So the rest of the privatizers are also in love with this government. hi

    Yukos was "privatized" incorrectly and illegally, and the rest of Soviet wealth was honestly shared? Has anyone decided to enter thin ice there?

    Stop, bargain and pay. Everyone gets paid in the end. There just probably still isn’t a beautiful formulation and reason to properly present it to us. Again, they will arrange a type of heroic defense in court, they say they did everything they could ...

        They will find a way. They will take a loan, for which year I have not been surprised at ingenious decisions and multi-steps. Again gasoline at 70r, VAT 35%, retirement age 75, there is still digging and digging)))
        And after the triumphant speeches about the pass, about the debt to Ukraine ... and then like, well, you have to pay, you what, how could it be otherwise. The trend is sad. They will not be paid in court, their assets will be seized or sanctions will be imposed, which will lower our standard of living, as usual.

    I suspect that these arguments will not matter.
    The case has been examined for many years, the arguments that have been set out long ago or should have been stated.
    The key point was the interpretation of certain provisions, in particular, whether international agreements were considered valid in Russia from the moment they were signed or from the moment they entered into force, it was about article 45 of the energy charter agreement.
    Russia then managed to prove that the treaties were not valid until the entry into force of the agreement.
    But later, the Constitutional Court decided in the case of the annexation of Crimea that the treaties are valid from the moment of signing.
    .

    The Treaty on the Adoption of Crimea was signed on March 18, 2014 and was applied temporarily until its ratification, which took place a few days later. The Constitutional Court, urgently considering the request of President Vladimir Putin to verify the constitutionality of this agreement, wrote on March 19 that "in fact, the adoption of the Republic of Crimea as part of the Russian Federation is provided as an element of the application of the treaty in question before its ratification." This meant that Crimea and Sevastopol were part of the Russian Federation from the moment of signing the agreement, and not from the moment it entered into force, the Constitutional Court explained.

    Yukos shareholders took advantage of this and appealed the old decision

    And how these new arguments can work if the key problem in the question was in a completely different way is not clear.
    This is, after all, an appeal, and not an examination of the case on the merits, they will obviously be asked there for new arguments - have you not known this for many years?

    The situation is simple: 1. Former Komsomol members stole an asset from the people. 2. Former Chekists squeezed out an asset stolen from the people from Komsomol members. 3. Komsomol members wanted money for an asset stolen from the people and squeezed out of lawlessness by the KGB. 4. They want money from the people, well, not the Chekists?
    They’ll get money, because people can’t get used to it without salt .. eat.
    Hopefully, from the NWF, Trillionchik Sberu was thrown into poverty. And other ghouls in line. Well, the Icelanders fellows, were able to organize a referendum that the debts of Alegarchs and bankers are the debts of banks, not the people or the state. Is it weak for us?
    Bankrupt this Rosneft, and create Gosneft with 146 million shareholders. This is true.
