Surely there was no such Internet resource where they would not publish information that the prosecutors of the Office of the Prosecutor General in the Pechersky District Court of Kyiv achieved an arrest on the hotels of the Premier Hotels & Resorts chain (Premier Palace Hotel, Premier Hotel Rus, Premier Hotel Lybid and Premier Hotel Slavutych in Kyiv, Premier Hotel Dnister in Lvov, Premier Hotel in Odessa) and a number of shopping and entertainment complexes, which are associated in public sources with the so-called Russian “Luzhnikovskaya” group, writes Anticorrosive.
Although there is no doubt that Russians own the hotels, it is not so easy to prove this fact. After all, you need to obtain undoubted evidence of their connection with the property, at a time when the latter are doing everything possible to hide the traces of their ownership: from the re-registration of corporate rights and bank accounts to nominal owners to the creation of complex offshore structures-companies with closed registries without the possibility of obtaining information on ultimate beneficial owners.
The judge’s investigators, in turn, faced with such a situation and the lack of evidence that the property belongs to Russians, find themselves in a difficult situation, when, on the one hand, a lot of information indicates that the owners of the property are Russians, and on the other hand, there is no proper and admissible evidence of this. enough.
This situation with the lack of evidence leads to the fact that in the future the property of such Russians in Ukraine is either problematic or impossible to confiscate.
For example, the other day the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court confiscated only part of the property of billionaire Shelkov to the state. At the same time, the court refused to nationalize the Demurinsky Mining and Processing Plant, because the court interfered with the fact that there was not enough evidence that Shelkov had control over it.
Another difficult victory of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine can be called “additional confiscation» The Appeal Chamber of the Higher Anti-Corruption Court of Property of Yanukovych on the appeal of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine against the decision of the court of first instance.
After all, the Supreme Anti-Corruption Court recognized as unproven the existence of indirect control over a number of real estate and movable property in the Yanukovych case and refused the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine to apply sanctions to such property by collecting them to the state.
