Dmitry Taput explained to the importance of the case related to the bankruptcy moratorium being considered by the Supreme Court of Russia

The comments of Dmitry Taput, Petrol Chilikov Associate, are cited by the law portal in a report from a session of the Judicial Panel for Commercial Disputes of the Russian Supreme Court regarding the legality of charging interest for late payment by a company which is subject to a “bankruptcy moratorium”:
