Ukrainian oligarch Ihor Kolomoysky believes that he will very soon continue to lead PrivatBank, and the International Monetary Fund is aware of this. The oligarch provided this information to the Kyiv Post during a telephone conversation.
"The International Monetary Fund knows that PrivatBank will be returned in the near future," -Kolomoysky said.
Ryaboshapka transferred the PrivatBank case to National anti-corruption bureau of Ukraine.
On December 18, 2016, the Government of Ukraine, referring to a proposal by the National Bank of Ukraine and former PrivatBank shareholders, the largest of which at that time were Kolomoysky and Gennady Bogolyubov, decided to nationalize this largest financial institution on the Ukrainian market. The ex-owners of the bank consider the nationalization carried out, as a result of which they completely lost their shares, illegal, while PrivatBank and the state demand additional compensation for losses from them. Currently, the parties are in litigation both in Ukraine and in foreign jurisdictions.
As we reported, businessman Ihor Kolomoysky is not a representative of the government and President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky’s team, and he is not authorized to speak on behalf of the state
