Former shareholders of "YUKOS" demand to arrest the property of Russia in Germany
According to the European press, the former shareholders of "YUKOS" was sent to the court of Berlin, a request for the seizure of state property of Russia in Germany in the amount of $ 42 billion. The arrest may be imposed on real estate, which is owned by Russia in Germany, as well as the income of state power companies from trading in Germany.
News in quite expected, shareholders of "YUKOS" periodically remind yourself. The bankruptcy of the company took place about ten years ago, the tax claims were exhibited in 2003, and finally "Yukos" was eliminated in 2007. And probably, if not the political confrontation between Russia and the West, this story would not have received the continuation.
We do not believe that the threat of "Yukos" for Russia is serious. Everyone understands that in response to Russia can arrest the German assets, and Russian companies may refuse to fulfill their obligations to the German creditors. Nevertheless, the news - an additional argument in favor of the transfer of assets of the former stabilization fund in rubles and placing them in the accounts of the Treasury. Risks to the fiscal reserve of the government will be less.
