Today PrivatBank paid UAH 21.8 million to the Nikopol Ferroalloy Plant following the judgment of Kyiv Economic Court dated December 17, 2019. At the same time, the bank appealed the court's decision, finding the judgement of the court of first instance unlawful, and the actions of the picket organizers as another attempt to pressure the bank.
The execution of the decision of the court of first instance makes absolutely groundless the holding of the mass picket of the "employees" of the plant, which continues from September 2019 in front of the central offices of the bank in Dnipro and Kyiv. The protests were designed to harass and interrupt the operations of the bank, to put pressure to our employees and customers.
According to the press service, the picketers resort to deliberate actions provoking conflicts with the bank employees, blocking passageways and exits from the bank offices and impeding the normal operation of the office.
In total, 134 complaints from bank employees and other citizens were registered by the police on the facts of the violations of the law.
