LONDON, February 18. /TASS/. The High Court of London registered Russia’s action against Ukraine filed because of $3 bln debt, the Court told TASS on Thursday.
"The claim was filed in the Financial List [the disputes trial system — TASS] on the 17th February," a Court’s representative said. "Names of parties are: The Law Debenture Trust Corporation PLC versus Ukraine represented by the Minister of Finance of Ukraine acting upon the instructions of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine," the source added.
"The Financial List is part of the Commercial Court," the court’s representative said.
The Financial List established in July 2015 is a specialist list set up to handle claims related to the financial markets with the amount of claims over 50 mln pounds sterling ($71.8 mln). Cases assigned to the Financial List will be managed and heard by specialist judges so as to provide fast, efficient and high quality dispute resolution of claims.
