Ukrainian tycoon, Dnepropetrovsk Region Governor Ihor Kolomoisky announced his plans to sue Russia over his investments in a company that owned Belbek airport in Sevastopol.
Kolomoisky said this in an interview with Ukrainian channel 5 TV, noting he had sent a letter to Russia proposing “an out of court settlement for the loss of a $15 million investment in a company that owned Belbek airport”.
Earlier, Russian court issued a warrant for Kolomoisky’s arrest in absentia for the “alleged financing of armed groups that have been taking part in the military operation in Donbas”.
Russia annexed Crimea in March, with Putin signed unification treaties on March 21. The annexation, however was recognized neither by Kyiv nor U.S. and the EU countries.
Belbek Airport near Sevastopol was mostly used by the military, still, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev ordered the airport to start servicing passenger planes as part of Russia’s transport system.
