Directly before the voting process, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky arrived to the Verkhovna Rada. The President called deputies to vote for the "banking" bill to help Ukraine's economy. The bill was supported by 270 deputies.
Bill №2571 includes amendments to the banking legislation. It became necessity because of court cases that have arisen around the decisions of the National Bank of Ukraine. The law applies to all banks that were declared bankrupt in 2014-2015 due to the crisis, including PrivatBank, the largest Ukrainian bank.
The document states that the former owners of bankrupt banks have the right to declare the actions of the state illegal and can claim material compensation from the state, but they must obtain an assessment of the international auditor, who will confirm their losses. From now on, the former owner cannot regain control of the financial institutions solely by court order.
The law will directly affect almost all lawsuits surrounding the nationalization of PrivatBank (reports Liga)
