Ukrainian businessman Rinat Akhmetov files another lawsuit against Russia. As an investor, he will demand from Russia through an arbitration court to compensate for all damages caused to his assets in the east of the country, which were expropriated under the direction or control of the Russian Federation in 2014-2017.
This is stated in a statement published on April 11 on the website of his company SCM.
What assets of the businessman suffered as a result of the war
Among the affected assets of the businessman are dozens of enterprises in the mining, metallurgical, energy sectors and real estate. For example, more than 400 million dollars were invested in the construction of the “Donbas Arena” alone.
“Therefore, I am filing a lawsuit for full compensation by the aggressor country for all damages caused to us since 2014 in the illegally occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions… I will invest the recovered funds in the restoration and construction of new enterprises, job creation and the growth of the Ukrainian economy”Akhmetov said.
It should be noted that in 2018 a lawsuit was filed against DTEK assets in the annexed Crimea, and in 2022 – a lawsuit with a list of destroyed or seized assets since the beginning of the full-scale invasion.
We will remind, as of the end of 2022, since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia on the territory of Ukraine, the twenty richest citizens together lost $20 billion in wealth. In particular, Rinat Akhmetov lost more than 9 billion dollars.
