Court recovers $43.9mln from Yugra Bank in favor of Alfa-Bank
The main owner of the credit organization, which has been deprived of its license, Aleksey Khotin, said that he would appeal this decision.
The Meshchansky Court of Moscow has granted the request of Alfa-Bank about recovering 2.6-million-ruble ($43.9 million) debt from Yurga Bank, RBC reports.
As the publication notes, Alfa-Bank decided to file the lawsuit without waiting for the license-deprived bank to be able to pay off its creditors. In turn, the main owner of Yugra Bank, Aleksey Khotin, tried to negotiate a settlement, proposing a debt restructuring plan, but the Alfa Bank representatives did not accept it.
"Considering the judicial procedure as a forced measure, we are open to the further search for a mutually acceptable solution," Alfa-Bank's press service representative announced.
Khotin stressed that he would appeal the decision of the Meshchansky Court, since, in his opinion, "there are no grounds for early repayment of the loan." He noted that over the last ten years of cooperation, the financial organization returned about $200 million to Alfa-Bank, and the present debt was paid in good faith.
In early November 2017, Basmanny Court of Moscow has satisfied the motion brought by the Main Investigations Directorate in the City of Moscow of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation (ICR) and remanded Aleksander Shukyurov, Director of the Capital Renovation Directorate State Budgetary Institution of Moscow, in custody. The head of the institution subordinate to the Department of Capital Renovation of the City of Moscow that had acted as the client in tenders worth dozens of billions of rubles is suspected of swindling on an especially large scale.
