Swedish court in the case of Yukos ruled in favor of the Russian Federation


“The Court of Appeal of Sweden satisfied the complaint of Russia in a case with Spanish investment funds that were holders of American depositary receipts for YUKOS shares. The appeal acknowledged that the arbitration institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, in July 2012, satisfied the claim of funds and collected $ 2 million and interest from the Russian Federation, had no competence to consider this dispute, ”the newspaper writes.

“Kommersant” recalls that “in the 2007 year, after Yukos was declared bankrupt and its assets were sold, seven Spanish funds sued the Stockholm arbitration court, referring to the expropriation of the oil company by the state and demanding compensation for its investments. Jurisdiction of the dispute was substantiated by a bilateral agreement between Spain and the USSR on the protection and promotion of investment from 1990 of the year. ” The arbitral tribunal recognized its competence and accepted claims from 4's funds.

According to the decision of the Swedish Court of Appeal, "a bilateral agreement allowed to consider in the arbitration of Stockholm only disputes about the amount and procedure for payment of compensation, other issues (the fact of investing and expropriating the company) were not covered by the Spanish-Soviet agreement, based on its literal interpretation," the newspaper said.

“After its entry into force, Russia has the right to demand cancellation of the decision of the Stockholm Arbitration to pay compensation in favor of Spanish funds,” Roman Zykov, secretary general of the Arbitration Association, explains. “The appeal decree also strengthens the position of the Russian side in cases of annulment of the decisions of the Hague arbitration, which awarded $ 50 billion to ex-shareholders of YUKOS.”

“Since the Hague decisions referred to the decision of the arbitration of Stockholm, Russia can challenge these arguments, relying on the decision of the Court of Appeal of Sweden,” Zykov explained.

In turn, Andrey Panov from the law firm Norton Rose Fulbrigh emphasized: “The decision of the Swedish appeal shows that the active position of the state in protecting its interests is bearing fruit. It is clear that it is expensive and not at all fast, but there are chances ”.

According to him, such a decision shows that "in Europe there is no common bias towards Russia and that the European courts are ready to correct the mistakes of their arbitrations."

      The Swedes remembered Poltava?

      Given where all these suits come from, so OUR EVERYTHING is remembered -
      But where is the first, invited guest?
      Where is the first, formidable our teacher,
      Whose long-term anger
      The Poltava winner humbled?
      Someday, God willing, we will teach Russia to love the "first guest", the "main teacher". Jump ...

            - According to my observations, politics is like fashion - there are their own "seasonal" trends.

            There was a trend "Travi Russia". Now it is getting a little uncomfortable: Russia warned, warned, and here - oops! Come true!

            At first, truly independent journalists flowed to the Crimea, to the Donbass. And now, the European deputies rushed there for some reason. And (oh horror!) They begin to speak as they are!

            At the OSCE in Donbass, the vector changed from "separatists fired" ➜ "there was no nifig" ➜ "yes, something flew in" ➜ "fired from there" and even so they write in the reports.

            True, except for "from there" there is no specifics. But there is the date of the document and it is known that Ukrainian invaders-punishers were sitting there at that time.

            This is some kind of nonsense - pinch me.

          Well, at the expense of justice, I would not flatter myself, but the fact that the idiot will be long-playing and emerge regularly - yes. Just remember how long it took "Leg" between the legs to beat.

          Swedes are one of the most eternal enemies of Russia, and even now they are acting against us, just doing it on the sly. but they act constantly, most of our traffic is studied in data centers in Sweden, and not only that.

      These are two completely different decisions of the two courts. The conversation is about 2 mil and a decision of the Stockholm arbitration. The 50 billion court handed down the Hague arbitration. There is still a court ahead.
      Do not confuse people, you are my joyful!

      I already wrote in the morning about 50 billion in a comment on another article. I didn’t figure it out from sleep ... Nobody has yet disputed the decision to pay 50 billion, it was made by another court. The Stockholm arbitration is only part of this money

    Bullshit is all that. If there were 2 lard, not a lemon. This is a bad sign for ugly people, they have hopes for the Stockholm arbitration. And $ 50 billion in Yukos, and hang for the Russian Federation by decision adopted in The hague.

      We recall the Eastern Front in 1918 - the capture of Simbirsk - "this is Vladimir Ilyich - for your first wound; and for the second wound, there will be Samara!" Dashing trouble is the beginning - there is the Stockholm court, we will get to The Hague! Fuck them with sunflower oil - these "YUKOS shareholders" - and not 50 lards of the national property!

    It is important that the Hague court relied on the decisions of the Stockholm arbitration. Now the position of the Russian Federation in the Hague court is becoming much harder. Down and Out trouble started.

    Not a fig not a supporter of Khodorkovsky. But the nationalization or, more precisely, the “squeezing out” of Yukos's assets was legally done like a boy. It was necessary to work more competently and thoroughly in this matter, President. Well. understandably "assets" were dispersed among friends. And if force majeure is forced to pay, otherwise the confiscation of everything and everyone? people will fork out? not to take "wrung out" from friends! not like a kid!

    (According to him, such a decision indicates that "in Europe there is no general bias against Russia and that European courts are ready to correct the errors of their arbitrations.")

    A moot point. The bias of European courts has been proven more than once in practice (an example is the Mistral case). stop

    Unfortunately, this does not directly affect the 50 billionth decision of the Hague Tribunal. According to this decision, the amount on a Russian scale is ridiculous.

    It is significant that from "large"the decision disappears, the reference to the decision canceled. And the Energy Charter has not been ratified by Russia. That is, the decision of the Hague Tribunal is unjust in general. Accordingly, the so-called"international justice"is a rotten and disgusting political court.

    It is simpler and much cheaper to send all these Hague courts, tribunals and other arbitrations to the WALKING EROTIC JOURNEY. And proceed from the primacy of Russian law. I don’t speak about the constitution, it was written during the time of Borka under the dictation of the USA

    Very indicative decision ...
    That the trial judge was incompetent ... unlikely, but a decision was made.
    How many shouts and threats against Russia were made by this decision ... that there, at the government level in many countries, the same lawyers are all fools ... the same is doubtful.
    “In Europe there is no general bias against Russia and that the European courts are ready to correct the mistakes of their arbitrations” ... there remains only one or awful administrative pressure ... after all, the judge should have been left without a bread card for such a demon ... but everything is in place.
    So the courts in the West are not so dependent.
