Olesya Petrol’s comment regarding the relationship between an arbitration dispute and prosecution in Russia is published by Delovoy Peterburg

Olesya Petrol, partner at Petrol Chilikov, commented on the conflict between former shareholders of the Delovye Linii transportation company, which escalated from arbitration into criminal proceedings.

To the best of my knowledge, in the LCIA, Khabarov’s partner was not referring to coercion. Therefore, I believe that, first, during the investigation in the criminal case, the law enforcement agencies may assess the inconsistent behaviour of the partner, who only stated about coercion after the London arbitration had been completed. Second, the finding of Russian law enforcement agencies in no event affects the recognition and enforcement of the LCIA award in Russia.
