In Kiev, they decided on a legal company that will defend Ukraine from China's claim against Motor Sich

58

The law firm King & Spalding will defend Ukraine against the claim of Chinese investors in Motor Sich in the amount of $ 3,5 billion. This is reported by the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine.


So, Kiev has identified its representative, who will advise and represent the interests of Ukraine in the claim of the Chinese shareholders of Motor Sich PJSC in the amount of $ 3,5 billion. For its services, the British branch of an international law firm requested $ 369.

When the consideration of the claim will begin and in which country, it has not yet been reported. Kiev received a notice that Chinese companies are filing a claim against Ukraine in the amount of $ 3,5 billion in early December last year. The interests of the plaintiffs will be represented by three international law firms that have established themselves as one of the most reputable in the world. These are WilmerHale, DLA Piper and Bird & Bird. Arzinger was involved as consultants on Ukrainian legislation.

As a reminder, Chinese investors own 56% of Motor Sich's shares purchased in 2016. Despite this, a decision was made in Kiev to "nationalize" the enterprise and transfer it to state ownership. In March of this year, all 100% of the company's shares were arrested and transferred to the management of the National Agency of Ukraine for the identification, search and management of assets received from corruption and other crimes (ARMA). In addition to the shares, all the company's property was also arrested.

Zelenskiy later signed a decree enacting the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine on the "nationalization" of the enterprise. Despite the "nationalization", Kiev has already offered to buy the enterprise from Turkey.

        Knowing the lawyers is just the beginning. Then there will be arbitrations separately, protests separately, etc.
        In general, besides the Chinese, the British will also take part in the undressing of Motor Sich

          The Ukrainians' business is losing.
          Accordingly, the costs of the Chinese lawyers will have to be paid if they lose.
          And I think the amount will not be less than that of the Ukrainian representatives.
          Thus, the price of the issue for Ukrainians will increase by one and a half times, at least.

        If they prove the corruption component in the purchase, and they will definitely prove it, hell will China get it. And how and to whom the SBU will sew this component, one can imagine. I would not be surprised if they have everything ready and the main corrupt official in this matter either dumped or is already feeding the worms.

          Well, as I say, the whole world lives by the rules, but it is difficult to judge Ukraine alone. On the one hand, Themis, guaranteeing justice on a global scale, realizing that the Ukrainians threw China, on the other hand, political expediency) And so in all matters relating to this territory.

          Well, yes, khana motorsich now, the payments will still be, not full, but there will be, the court will decide. And this will put Ukraine in a bankrupt position, it will not be able to pay even half. The losses will be much greater for the most independent. The court will win China, China's investments are large in Europe, they know where to grease. Here, state fraud is evident, Kiev signed an investment protection agreement. So corruption does not play any role here. If they prove that China made a fraudulent deal, then yes, but this is unlikely, the Chinese contracts are working out well. China never invests money just like that! hi

      When will the consideration of the claim begin and in which country, it has not yet been reported

      The fact is that in such contracts, the country and the applicable law are clearly indicated.
      It could be London, Frankfurt am Main, Paris, even Singapore ... And law as a body of laws can be chosen.
      There is no particular riddle here, you need to look in the "dispute resolution" section. But this is between private parties, which were the Chinese and the shareholders of Motor Sich.

      On the other hand, there are individual cases of illegal expropriation or nationalization by states of the property of foreign investors (with or without compensation, note). And now this is no longer just the civil law of a separate state, but international private or international public law (there are aspects in both forms). There may be different variations of the trial, let's wait for the news.

    Our neighbors, due to their rural mentality and small-town narrow-mindedness, cannot understand in any way that China does not have “brotherly peoples,” the Chinese are pragmatists and look at things rationally and soberly. And let the chubby lads hire at least ten law firms, the Chinese will crush them for deception. And given the state of the shared economy, the chances of being a fool are very high and very real. Drive yourself into your stupid little heads, sly neighbors!

      Don't tell. Ukraine nationalized Motor Sich. The usual scheme, with the same Kolomoisky gave a ride. But playing such games with foreign partners, who until now were not engaged in anal investments, but in the supply of real money, is the height of idiocy.
      Nothing new happened, the Ukrainians again acted as an instrument in whose fight with China, is this news for someone?
      But how the global legal system will behave, which is already slipping on all fronts, this is already interesting

        Boguslaev (private person) decided to sell his 56%. Permissions
        he could not get it from the government. The Chinese, in spite of this,
        paid for the shares. The government went crazy and the shares were arrested
        in 2016 !!! (is this not nationalization?). Both sides continue
        ignore the position of the state. The result is that the state freaked out again
        and 56% arrested by him NATIONALIZED. Curtain.
        Otherwise, my brother decided to sell his half of the parental house without
        my consent. I filed a lawsuit and half of him were arrested.
        Question 1 - why did the Chinese pay my brother money if he didn’t have
        right to sell something ?,
        Question 2 - if the Chinese paid something to my rogue brother,
        from whom should they demand money?
        Question 3 - Lukashenka did the same with Boguslaev and nationalized
        Motor Sich enterprise on the territory of Belarus, why did no one even make a sound?

        Moreover, they gave him a loan. Those. they knew who they were buying from, they knew who
        lent - what do they now want from the second owner - Ukraine?
        After all, Ukraine did not take money from them and did not sell its share of the plant.

            From the same opera:

            Ukrainian enterprises that have lost their property and profits due to Russian aggression have filed claims in 12 commercial arbitrations. The amount of claims is over $ 4,5 billion, said the Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Yevgeny Yenin on the air of the Dom TV channel.
            "The government actively encourages our enterprises that have lost their property, lost profits, in order to go to arbitration and sue, sue and again sue the Russian side for everything they have lost," the diplomat emphasized.
            According to him, there are already the first positive results. "On three of them (commercial arbitrations - ed.), At least, there are already the first positive decisions. This is somewhere around $ 250 million," the deputy minister said.
            According to him, Ukraine does not intend to stop at this and "the main lawsuits are still ahead."
