Kiev celebrates victory: the court ruled on Ukrainian property in Crimea

A lawsuit is ongoing, during which the Ukrainian company Ukrnafta is trying to obtain compensation from Russia for the expropriation of investments on the territory of the Crimean Peninsula.

According to the company’s press service, the Swiss Supreme Court rejected Russia and upheld the international arbitration decision of April 12, 2019, according to which it is obligated to pay Ukrnafta $ 44,4 million.

In addition, Russia must pay legal costs in the amount of 150 thousand dollars. The Ukrainian company focused on the fact that the decision of the Supreme Court of Switzerland is final and not subject to appeal.

Ukrnafta went to court on the basis of an intergovernmental agreement between Ukraine and Russia on the mutual protection of investments.

Among the property for which the Ukrainian company has lost ownership after the events of 2014, there are 16 gas stations and several administrative premises in the territory of Crimea.

Earlier, Russia did not recognize the legality of the decision of the Hague Arbitration on payment of compensation to the Ukrainian company for the property remaining on the peninsula, since it believes that this body does not have the necessary jurisdiction to consider this issue and make a decision on it.

    What kind of clowning ??? We then need to turn to the Supreme Court of the PRC and let it decide to recover from Ukraine simply unrealistic big money for renting and plundering the Crimea.

    Such decisions must be confirmed by the Constitutional Court of Russia .... if it finds the decisions illegal, then Russia should not comply with such decisions of foreign courts ...
    During the collapse of the USSR, each republic received the property that was on its territory, and why did the Crimean Autonomous Republic not receive such property on its territory? ...
    So, Crimea should receive its property upon secession from Ukraine, especially since this secession occurred lawfully under the UN Charter, during an anti-constitutional coup (coup) and not legitimate seizure of power by the Nazis in Ukraine, with direct support from the West, when the Constitution of Ukraine does not acted, and the Ukrainian authorities were not legitimate (and still they are illegitimate).
    That is, property on the territory of Crimea was nationalized by the independent Crimean People's Republic LEGALLY, as the property of the USSR at the time of its independence from the USSR was once independent Ukraine.
    And then Crimea became part of Russia with its legal property, which has become legally Russian.
    That is, everything is legal.
    And Ukraine and the West need to show DULY ...

    Well, in 2014 Russia left the property in the management of Ukrainian companies. Until December 31, 2015 they were supposed to transfer their business into the framework of Russian legislation. And uk. companies just left everything - banks, gas stations, resorts. The property turned out to be unowned. And Russia had to undertake obligations of Ukrainian banks and companies to Crimeans.

    Crimea, Donbass and Lugansk do not want to contain a rotortail anymore. They will not immediately recover their finances after living with a bad guy. But the werewolf has a new hahal, Uncle Sam. He will feed her, give her a drink and put her to bed. His missiles are thick and long. Greedy truth and in debt. It seems to the same and violence does not disdain. Why their former cohabitant wants money from us, I can’t understand.

    Ukraine will not be in Crimea, this is already a victory ... By the way, it is time for Russia to demand money from an independent one, because, being a subsidized region of the USSR, it has traveled around Russia and other donor republics ... Let them pay ...

    Our Constitutional Court must reverse the decision of the Hague Arbitration, as unauthorized! And let the Anglo-Saxons prove that this is not so.
