Arrest of shares of Russian banks in Ukraine is an attempt of the Ukrainian oligarchs to make up for their own destruction at the expense of others, said the Vice-Premier of the Crimean government Dmitry Polonsky.

The appellate court of Kiev arrested shares in Prominvestbank («daughter» VEB), Sberbank (a subsidiary of Sberbank of Russia) and «VTB Bank» («daughter» of the Russian VTB) at the suit of the enterprises of businessman Igor Kolomoisky. Kolomoysky’s company was required to recognize and enforce the arbitration award of the Hague of may 2, in the case of the recovery from Russia of compensation for lost real estate in Crimea. Only a suit filed by 19 companies. Banks whose shares were arrested, forbidden to liquidate and reorganize a legal entity.

«This decision is the best illustration of all of what is happening in Ukraine, political and economic processes. Business of the thieves, previously appropriated significant assets belonging to the people of Ukraine, and not have suffered absolutely no punishment for their crimes, including in the Donbas, is now trying to make up for their own destruction at the expense of Russian banks», — told RIA Novosti Polonsky.

According to him, Ukraine seem to have forgotten that for many years Russia was a major investor in the Ukrainian economy.

«It is Russia in the most challenging and difficult times for Ukraine situations have provided her with serious financial aid is and low gas prices, and billions of dollars in loans. Obviously, to bite the hand that feeds is still the main principle of current Ukrainian authorities and closely related oligarchy,» said Polonsky.
