G7 ambassadors, PM Shmyhal discuss PrivatBank court case

The Ambassadors of the G7 countries and Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal have discussed the issues of PrivatBank court cases, legal situation around anti-corruption bodies, energy market and other topical issues.

EU Ambassador to Ukraine Matti Maasikas wrote this on Twitter.

“Thanks to Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal for excellent open-air & open-minded meeting with G7 ambassadors! COVID, local elections, energy market, legal situation around anti-corruption agencies, public administration nominations, PrivatBank court cases, health care reform etc discussed,” he wrote.

On September 2, Kyiv’s Pechersk District Court ruled that PrivatBank must pay $350 million to the companies owned by Surkis brothers.

The Finance Ministry of Ukraine has stated it does not agree with the court’s ruling and will continue to protect the interests of the state and the bank.

The G7 ambassadors issued a statement saying that ensuring independence of anti-corruption bodies is an important element of Ukraine’s international commitments, and underscored the need to select heads of anti-corruption institutions through transparent, merit-based and politically neutral selections processes.
