Decision on payment of $ 50 billion by Russia in the Yukos case canceled

The Dutch Supreme Court, being the last resort (the European Court does not hear cases from non-EU countries), overturned the decision of the Hague Court of Appeal that the Russian government would pay $ 50 billion to the former shareholders of Yukos. The case was returned for reconsideration to a lower court.

The Supreme Court overturns the final decision of the Court of Appeal, as well as the previous decision of the court. The case is referred to the Amsterdam Court of Appeal for a new trial

- appears in the ruling of the court.

Thus, Russia wins in a dispute with the former shareholders of the oil company. In 2014, the International Arbitration Court in The Hague awarded them $ 50 billion, which was to be paid by the Russian government. Two years later, this decision of the IAH was overturned by the District Court of The Hague. In February last year, the Hague Court of Appeal again ordered Russia to pay these funds to the ex-shareholders of Yukos. This decision is now considered invalid.

    Is it accurate?
    There have already been 2 such victories, the media were throwing their caps straight, and then it turned out that this was just a legal delay in the left-wing courts, and no one canceled the payment of 57 milliards ..

    even if they are awarded to pay, for the Russian Federation it does not change anything, if they confiscate the property of the Russian Federation (state real estate), then the Russian Federation can easily confiscate Western assets in the Russian Federation, and this is 200 billion, dial "the largest Western companies in the Russian Federation", all of them will be confiscated , they will answer the lawlessness with lawlessness))

      As long as the guys from YUKOS have money for lawyers, the case will drag on, and then ... well, it didn't work out.
