UK Supreme Court has completed the hearing on the final appeal against Russia's statement of adjudication against Ukraine under the simplified procedure regarding three billion dollars in Eurobonds allegedly issued by Ukraine in December 2013 (the so-called "Yanukovych debt case"). This was reported on the website of the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine.
"The hearing on the final appeal in the Supreme Court has lasted for 4 days, which testifies to the importance of this case and its complexity from a legal point of view. The team of Ukraine’s legal advisers presented strong legal arguments and its position in front of a distinguished panel of five judges of the Supreme Court," the message says.
As a result of the hearing, the judges reported that the decision was postponed to a later date. The results of the final appeal against Russia's statement of adjudication against Ukraine under the simplified procedure will be announced after the Supreme Court pronounces its decision, which is likely to be in 2020.
As we reported earlier, Obolon District Court of Kyiv found ex-president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych not guilty of complicity to Russia in the attack against Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, as Ukrainian News informed citing the verdict announced by judge Maksym Titov.
According to the sentence, the court found Yanukovych guilty of committing crimes such as state treason, complicity, planning, preparation, unleashing and holding of aggressive war. While the accusation of the attack against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, which led to severe consequences, was recognized as unproven.
