We will remind, earlier the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the former owners of nationalized PrivatBank will be responsible for bringing financial institutions to bankruptcy in accordance with the requirements of Ukrainian legislation.

As you know, PrivatBank was nationalised in December 2016. The whole procedure took 72 hours. The reason is that “Private” could not execute the recapitalization program.

The Finance Ministry and the NBU had already stated that the move to the state was the only viable option to save financial institutions.

At the same time,I am a former beneficiary of “Privat” Igor Kolomoisky insisted that PrivatBank was the victim of the “tyranny of the NBU”.
