Based on the SBI materials, the court confiscated a controlling stake in a bank owned by a russian owner to the state


On February 27, a panel of judges of the High Anti-Corruption Court ruled to confiscate 88.9% of shares in a banking institution beneficially owned by russian citizen and president of the russian football club CSKA Yevgeny Giner.

The court satisfied the claim filed by the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine, which was based on the materials of the SBI investigation.

As a reminder, on February 23, SBI officers conducted searches at the offices of the management board and supervisory board, as well as at the office of Giner's commercial bank.

The investigative actions were conducted to verify information on the legality of the bank's receipt and use of financial preferences in the amount of more than UAH 1.6 billion. Some of them were received by the bank after the active phase of hostilities.

The SBI is also checking information on the involvement of high-ranking officials and deputies of the russian federation in committing crimes in Ukraine. In particular, through direct or indirect control over enterprises of Ukraine's critical energy infrastructure.

The pre-trial investigation is ongoing.

Procedural guidance is provided by the Prosecutor General's Office.

As a reminder, by the decision of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine of October 19, 2022, enacted by the Decree of the President of Ukraine of 19.10.2022 No. 727/2022, sanctions were imposed on a citizen of the russian federation, Yevgeny Giner, for a period of 10 years.
