In 2008, Kulikova was appointed a judge indefinitely.

Svitlana Kulikova was married to judge of the Dnipro district court Eduard Bovkun, and this relationship was not mentioned in the declarations of both judges. According to public activists, in 2013 Kulikova bought a Toyota Land Cruiser Prado at a reduced price of 149 thousand hryvnias in order to avoid financial monitoring for operations above the threshold of 150 thousand hryvnias.


Associated with Kolomoisky

She was a member of the panel of judges, which made an unjust decision, obliging Privatbank to pay 7 billion hryvnias to the offshore companies of Surkis brothers. During the nationalization of the bank, Surkis borthers were recognized as related parties who, due to the connection with the previous owners of the bank — Kolomoisky and others, had a privileged position. As a result, their deposits and the deposits of their companies were forcibly converted into the authorized capital of the nationalized Privatbank. 7 billion hryvnias are an interest accrued on convertible deposits of companies since nationalization in early 2017.
