Now, the former owners of Privatbank will have to return the expenses that the bank suffered.

"Thus, Mr. Kolomoysky and Mr. Bogolyubov... have no more ways to appeal, so the bank's lawsuit will be considered in the High Court of London. The Bank is sure that eventually, it will be able to get back over three billion dollars", Privatbank's representatives commented on the court's decision.
