Asters contributes to a major victory for Ukraine in the UK Supreme Court
Today the UK Supreme Court has handed down its judgment to send for a full public trial the legal proceedings initiated on behalf of Russia relating to the US$3 billion Eurobonds issued by Ukraine in December 2013. This landmark ruling permits Ukraine to defend the claim in the English courts on the ground of duress exercised by Russia against Ukraine through threats of aggression back in 2013 and Russia’s subsequent behaviour could not realistically be ignored. The full disclosure will adduce another evidence that Ukraine has truth and right on its side.
The Supreme Court judgment is available via the link.
