Yukos shareholders owe Russia

The district court in The Hague upheld the complaint of the Russian Federation regarding the claim of Yukos shareholders on 50 billions of dollars. The appeal established: the jurisdiction of the arbitration did not include the consideration of claims of this kind. This is the case since July 2014, when the arbitration court in The Hague satisfied the claim of the former shareholders and ordered Russia to pay them the indicated billions.


Yukos shareholders owe Russia


On April 20, the District Court of The Hague overturned the decision of the Permanent Court of Arbitration, which in July 2014 ordered Russia to pay 50 billion dollars to former Yukos shareholders, namely Hulley Enterprises, Veteran Petroleum (Cyprus) and Yukos Universal (о. Maine). All these offshore companies are associated with Group Menatep Limited (GML). At one time, they controlled more than 70% YUKOS.

The court in The Hague agreed with the arguments of the Russian Federation and acknowledged that the arbitral tribunal did not have jurisdiction to consider such a dispute under the Energy Charter Treaty (Moscow signed it, but did not ratify it). And now three plaintiffs (named above) are obliged to reimburse the Russian Federation for legal costs - everyone will pay 16,8 thousand euros, just 50,4 thousand euros, сообщается in a court decision.

In total, the court overturned six arbitral awards of the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague: three intermediate and three final. All reversed decisions dealt with a court claim to the Russian Federation to pay damages totaling about 50 billion US dollars to the companies Yukos Universal Limited, Hulley Enterprises Limited and Veteran Petroleum Limited, according to the website of the Court of The Hague. The current decision means: Russia will not have to pay compensation to former plaintiffs.

Having studied the legislation of the Russian Federation, the court in The Hague found out that in order to attract Russia to arbitration in such disputes, a corresponding legal norm is required, which must be approved by the Russian State Duma, the clarification notes.

Here is the catch: the necessary norm is neither in general, nor in particular, that is, with reference to the YUKOS case, in the Russian Federation does not exist: Russian lawmakers have not ratified the Energy Charter Treaty. Therefore, the court found that the consideration of this case could not be in the jurisdiction of the members of the arbitration. Simply put, international arbitration in general had no right to interfere in the issues under consideration.

The court in The Hague recalled that four provisions play an important role in the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT):

- Article 26, which establishes the rules for disputes between a foreign investor and a state party to the convention;

- Article 39, implying that the treaty must be ratified by the signatories;

- Article 44, establishing the entry into force of the convention only when the treaty has been ratified by certain states;

- Article 45, which determines that each party to the contract agrees to its temporary use until it enters into force, but only to the extent that such temporary use does not contradict its constitution, laws or rules.

The court ruled that the wording of article 45 establishes the need to study the relevant sections of the Energy Charter Treaty for conflicts with the constitution or other legal acts of the state. This interpretation of the 45 article is different from the opinion of the arbitrators who had previously made the decisions.

As a result, the Hague court ruled that the possibility of this arbitration in accordance with Article 26 of the ECT is contrary to Russian laws.

"Our complaint against the decision of the arbitration in The Hague about the payment of 50 billions of dollars is fully satisfied," Interfax words of the head of the International Center for Legal Protection Andrei Kondakov.

“Today’s decision leads to the cancellation of the claim for the payment of billions of dollars by Russia,” he added.

In November, 2014, reminds Interfax, Russia filed three applications to the District Court of The Hague to annul decisions made by the Court of Arbitration for the claims of the former Yukos shareholders. At the International Center for Legal Defense representing the interests of the Russian Federation, it was later explained that at the time of the court’s ruling, there was no valid arbitration agreement. Russia has not ratified the Energy Charter Treaty and applied it temporarily and only to the extent that the application did not contradict its legislation. The transfer of the dispute with the plaintiffs to the resolution in international arbitration was contrary to Russian law. In addition, the plaintiffs were not foreign investors and could not count on the protection of the Energy Charter Treaty, because they were "dummy companies controlled by Russian citizens."

However, it’s too early to put a full stop in the “international affair” of Yukos. It is also not clear when the arrest will be lifted from Russian property located abroad and earlier in some countries arrested in pursuance of a previous court decision.

“This decision of the District Court of The Hague allows Russian representatives to seek the repeal of decisions taken in a number of countries to recognize the verdict of the Hague Arbitration Court and lift, respectively, the arrest imposed on Russian assets abroad,” said Interfax source familiar with the situation.

The source found it difficult to name the exact dates for unlocking Russian assets, pointing to the cumbersome judicial procedure. “For some of the lawsuits and complaints, schedules for their consideration in courts, such as in the United States, have already been established. In others, apparently, it is necessary to submit new applications, ”he said.

Representatives of YUKOS, in addition, have the opportunity to appeal the decision of the District Court of The Hague dated April 20 in higher instances.

"Therefore, it is theoretically too early to say that stories with a claim for recovery from the Russian Federation 50 billion dollars in favor of the ex-shareholders of YUKOS, the point has been put, ”the Interfax interlocutor concluded.

While in the Netherlands the district court studied the validity of the decision of the Hague arbitration, the shareholders of Yukos conducted the processes in six countries: Belgium, France, Great Britain, Germany, USA and India, hoping in this way to enforce 50 billion dollars from Russia. In France and Belgium, RBC, local legislation allowed shareholders to arrest, but not to take away Russian assets, because the courts were still going.

As for the former shareholders of Yukos, they really decided to appeal the decision of the Hague district court.

This is stated in the incoming RBC GML press release, representing the interests of the former majority shareholders of Yukos.

The document cites the head of the GML Tim Osborne, who called the decision of the court in The Hague "unexpected." The plaintiffs consider the 2014 decision on the payment of fifty-billion-dollar compensation for the “politically motivated destruction of Yukos” to be correct.

“We are fully confident that law and justice will prevail,” said Osborne.

Now let's move on to the personal site of Mr. Khodorkovsky. 10 February 2015 of the year TASS publication was placed under the heading "Around Yukos" of this site "Consideration of the appeal of the Russian Federation in the Yukos case will take years".

TASS Received a statement from GML. “We expect the process, including appeals, to last for years, but in the end, payments will be confirmed in our favor,” the agency’s source said. - Russia uses its right to appeal to the district court of the city of The Hague in order to annul payments. We have nothing against their use of their legal rights, but we believe that the arguments of the Russian Federation have no grounds, and they just continue to try to delay the inevitable. "

In the GML forecast, we note that neither the first nor the second has come true: the process did not last “years”, and the payments were canceled along with the previous decisions.

Moreover, the former shareholders were charged to reimburse the Russian Federation for legal costs.

And what headlines still hang on Khodorkovsky's website! "Yukos shareholders will seek the recovery of Russian property in India", “The assets of Russia arrested in France were valued at one billion euros”, "Yukos shareholders began to pay compensation", "According to the claims of YUKOS, VGTRK shares were arrested", "Yukos shareholders demanded 42 billion dollars through a German court", "Yukos shareholders filed a lawsuit against Russia in the court of London", "Belgium arrested Russian property on the claim of Yukos", "France has arrested the assets of Russia" etc. All of them can be found at home page, under reference to the biography of M. B. Khodorkovsky.

Now all these multibillion-dollar "achievements" can only be wiped.

However, Mr. Osborne and his GML partners "are fully confident that law and justice will prevail."

Strange, however, statement.

So, the GML does not consider the decision of the court in The Hague neither legal nor fair?

Or, even more, all decisions made in favor of Russia cannot be considered lawful and fair?

It is always difficult to lose, Mr. Osborne and Mr. Khodorkovsky. Especially to lose by fifty billion.

      The fact that Russia has not ratified the energy charter is not the only reason for such a court decision. All plaintiffs are citizens of the Russian Federation, so the conflict of interest is domestic. By the way, for the same reason, the Hague refused to accept a lawsuit from residents of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions against Ukraine, considering it an internal Ukrainian and not an international affair.

          No, he said it right. The shareholders at the time of the event were Russian citizens who manage assets through offshore companies. That is why the matter is purely internal Russian

            Do not talk nonsense. Russian citizens owned offshore companies on which the shares of Yukos were registered. So formally, offshore companies were Yukos shareholders.

        The decision of the Hague court clearly showed that not only in our country does the court make politically motivated decisions. But it is nice that the law and common sense eventually triumphed. By the way, the district court in The Hague for the first time overturned the decision of a lower court in the history of its existence.

        It's right. In general, you are right in your reasoning. But there is still a moment. Our "partners" have recently impudently violated international law, turning it into a fiction. But along the way, they run the risk of encountering some problem.
        If you accept the primacy of power in international relations, then at first glance everything is great for them. But on the second ...
        What prevents Russia from adopting a law under which the residents of The Hague are obliged to walk around without exception? And in case of non-compliance, Russia has the right to confiscate the city of The Hague, all the assets of its residents and firms that do not comply with our fair law aimed at protecting democracy and human rights (like all such laws) and introduce our fair external governance in this wrong city.
        This behavior of Russia will be fully consistent with their actions when they try to confiscate our money under a false pretext. It seems the guys got it - you can bend your fingers in front of the hares. A bear can adequately respond to such behavior - you cannot collect bones then. In general, we are reviving this very international law. As always, not by negotiations and chatter, but by a powerful fist, which we are ready to really apply. This kind of profit comes from conflicts like the Syrian.

        You are welcome. But the prosecutor’s office of the Russian Federation (IMHO) needs to re-initiate a case against Khodorkovsky’s abductor due to his failure to fulfill the conditions of his release from custody, and in case of failure to appear in court, deprive him of his citizenship and liquidate his passport.
        (And what you wanted - that’s it.)

      Now the parties will "expire" in legal costs. Judging by European democracy, the one with the most money always wins. If politics does not intervene, then Abramovich has no chance of winning. Otherwise, the international Hague courts will be covered with a copper basin.

          No matter how west we are, by this decision, I have not prepared a legal trap. It turns out that we just passed the law on non-recognition of the jurisdiction of international courts and at the same time recognize the decision of the District Court in The Hague. I am ignorant of the legal subtleties, but will they not take advantage of these contradictions in the West? I think we need to keep an eye on them with them. I ask you not to judge strictly, I'm just rooting for my country and expressing my assumption.

      Everything is a little different there.
      Hodor was given money to buy factories for cheap. Bought up. Did Yukos. The West controls our oil industry and makes all the profit (taxes and Yukos excise taxes were not paid then). And here they’ll take it. The true owners, of course, were offended: they were not used to the fact that the Americans were drenched in a vat with d ... m.
      Or does someone think that Misha in 25 years immediately after the institute had millions of dollars overnight to buy banks and factories, because he earned them? )))
      The West is used to doing everything with the wrong hands, and allocate only money for the things they need. That our liberals, that Ukrainian junta, that Khodor - all of them work with Western money.
      The de facto court was not with Misha, but with major Western oil corporations.
      So, we are waiting for the continuation of the ballet. )))

    The court decision is certainly pleasing. Yes, that's just still drags on for a long time. But Khodarkovsky’s pocket is not bottomless and it will soon be unprofitable to pay “cool” lawyers.
    Energy Charter Treaty (Moscow signed it, but not ratified)

    That's what it means to not rush into another trap - the benefits are clear.

And they sent a white swan abroad, even the prison bots did not have time to change clothes. This is not an honest word, here he was exchanged for something and consciously took the risk that his activities represented. By the way, it seems that Khodor personally didn’t have much benefit from the 50 mln case.

      It’s easier to deal with them abroad, if what happens to him in Russia, then he will be a fighter for justice. Kirdyk will also wait for Nanolis.

    It is time to cancel the decision on the early release of Khodorkovsky, since the criminal did not take the path of correction, and put him on the international wanted list as a fraudster along with his friends from offshore zones, and with confiscation of all their property. The expropriation of expropriators is not lost in our time.

      For a long time already! As a customer in the case of the murdered mayor of Nefteyugansk. It happened both in the news and in.
      And declared internationally wanted.

    Yukos shareholders, of course, are crooks. But they are supported by our "partners".
    Therefore, it is necessary to agree not with shareholders, but with partners.
    It looks like this process has started. It is associated with the proposed sale of shares of Rosneft. Hence the decision of the Hague court ...

    Russia knows its heroes. It’s interesting to me, after all, how Khodorkovsky is going to come back and participate in the politics of the state? Maybe he wants to be the second Nemtsov?

    I think this is a natural result of a consistent policy in international relations, and thank God there are people in Europe who honor and respect the law.

    Instead of releasing Hodor from prison, it was necessary to ensure that he did not go out at all! How much more blood will spoil Khodor and his masters, our country! I was always worried about the question of why Hodor was only planted! Are our other oligarchs honestly rich, overnight!

    I listened to Vladimir Solovyov not long ago! He touched on a very interesting topic, how the theme of the YUKAS lawsuit filed against Russia on Echo of Moscow radio is voiced! How the employees of the Echo of Moscow radio station rejoiced and gloated over the first process won! How praised Khodorkovsky! And when the District Court in The Hague upheld the complaint of the Russian Federation regarding the lawsuit of Yukos shareholders for $ 50 billion, not a single comment! Dry one news line! There is no more harmful dissident radio station than Ekho Moskvy for Russia!

    The reasons for this decision on the surface. By a decision of the arbitration court they tried to scare Russia and at the same time check whether such methods would be rolled. It didn’t work, it didn’t. Now, in order not to lose face, the decision was canceled. However, if the Russian Federation agreed with the decision of the arbitral tribunal in The Hague, then claims would have fallen on all sides. I am glad that our authorities did not show weakness, and won. And they won by their rules, which raises the price of victory.

    It is strange to read all the enthusiastic comments on this subject, of course I am very pleased that the scales of European justice swayed towards Russia, but some time ago, when the same bowl leaned towards the shareholders, most members of the forum spoke out in the vein that they say what right has some kind of European court to decide our internal affairs ... You have already decided gentlemen, comrades, we take decisions of the European court only when it is in our favor or always? Russia is a great country, and should have a clear position .... Respectfully, and be consistent in your opinions ...

    Maybe it's not just that Hodor was released. Perhaps there is some evidence against him.
    With the same case Petukhov for example.
    We’ll wait until all politicians kiss him there, and then they will lay out a trump card.
    And the West will be tormented with Hodor. It was like a political prisoner, but still a criminal.

    [right] [/ right] According to Khodorkovsky, he is an intelligent and treacherous enemy. The representative of the totalitarian Satanic sect is Dianetics in the Russian Federation.
    He organized seminars in schools. Children were taken to the forest to conduct training seminars on programs provided from the USA. The reach was enormous, several million schoolchildren throughout Russia. For each student taken out, the teacher received 900 rubles. It was up to the new elite of Russia to train me. I I encountered it when my son came home from school and talked about some strange activities that some American did. He had to jump, we’re funny bananas, bananas from around the world, unite. I forbade my son to participate in this explicit NLP program. I started digging, I found thanks from Honored teacher of the Russian Federation Korakovsky Foundation New Generation for providing students for the experiment. From the New Generation there was a thread to the Scientology Sect. Her representative was Khodorkovsky, he oversaw Russia. This was a huge danger looming over the country. Millions of children who grew up under the programs of sectarians, subsequently had to leave study abroad. Compose a business elite. Enter the political leadership of the country. The role of the Ministry of Education and teachers remains unclear. Their disputes remained. They were not repressed, the investigation was not conducted. Those who are called to teach in summer have sold out to the totalitarian sect, and today they work in schools. Funds like the New Generation have reduced their activity, but their debate remained .This is an invisible danger, worse than a clear enemy. The cleaning of the Ministry of Education is long overdue. And Khodorkovsky was stopped very on time, his activity in the economy, theft was relatively harmless, the danger was in his plans. Khodorkovsky’s money should have destroyed Russia. They say they took him at the airport in an airplane that was on the runway. Going to China. An enemy of Khodorkovsky. Putin released him in vain, though ... without money he would be like a snake without poison.
