Ihor Kolomoisky and other shareholders of Privatbank agreed to transfer the bank to the state after December 20. It is reported by the Economic Truth daily, citing the sources close to the shareholders.
"After long months of intense negotiations, the parties found a compromise. According to sources of the Economic Truth, Ihor Kolomoisky and other shareholders agreed to transfer the bank to the state after December 20," the daily says.
But the consent of Kolomoisky and other creditors was not enough.
"There was a meeting in the Presidential Administration late in the evening on December 14 where the Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman spoke out against such scenario. It is difficult to say now whether the bank will be nationalized by the end of the year. Without the concent of the Prime Minister it cannot be done," the article says.
"In any case, the position of the Prime Minister is convincing because it‘s possible that it’s absolutely not the case when solving the PrivatBank problem earlier is a better and cheaper solution, even if it is required by the IMF," the material noted.
Earlier PrivatBank declared that the talks of nationalization was an attack on the bank.
Earlier it was reported that Kolomoisky elected as one of the leaders of UKROP party. The decision was made during the XI congress of the political force.
