Earlier, on April 18, Kyiv-based court ruled that the nationalization of Privatbank in late 2017 was 'conducted with multiple law breaches.' The court, thus, granted the motion by Ihor Kolomoysky, the oligarch who appealed against the nationalization of the bank he had owned. District Administrative Court of Kyiv granted the claim of Kolomoysky, as he appealed against the National Bank of Ukraine and Ukraine’s Government on nationalization of PrivatBank.
