Court Again Orders To Arrest Oil Depot In Kherson Following National Police's Lawsuit

Court Again Orders To Arrest Oil Depot In Kherson Following National Police's Lawsuit

Following a lawsuit from the National Police of Ukraine the Kyiv Appeal Economic Court has reinstated the arrest of an oil depot in Kherson which is collateral for an NBU's stabilization loan of UAH 800 million to Real Bank undergoing liquidation.

This is said in materials of the court, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

The Kyiv Pecherskyi District Court froze the asset (the oil depot in Kherson) belonging to the Ukrainian Industrial Union LLC on 16 April 2014 as security for a lawsuit.

Valeria Hontareva, the Governor of the National Bank of Ukraine, personally requested that the asset be unfrozen because it was necessary to sell it.

A prosecutor objected against this request, citing the fact that the relevant criminal proceedings have not been closed because the owner of the oil depot, Serhii Kurchenko, and a former head of the department of petroleum products at the VETEK company, Serhii Kryvyi, have been declared wanted.

The court rejected Hontareva's request in March 2016.

Then, the National Bank of Ukraine filed a lawsuit against the National Bank, asking the Kherson Regional Economic Court to unfreeze the asset.

The Kherson Regional Economic Court granted the National Bank of Ukraine's lawsuit on 11 October 2016 and unfroze the asset.

The National Police appealed to the Kyiv Economic Court of Appeal, asking the court to overturn the decision.

On 17 January 2017, the Kyiv Appeal Economic Court satisfied the lawsuit of the National Police and voided a ruling of the Kyiv Economic Court cancelling the arrest of the oil depot in Kherson.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the National Bank of Ukraine expected to sell the Kherson oil refinery complex in 2016.

The Kherson oil refinery complex was used as collateral for a stabilization loan of UAH 800 million to Serhii Kurchenko's Real Bank.
