As noted, this is stated in the message of the Dutch fund Yukos, which manages litigation with the aim of winning and distributing compensation for the liquidation of Yukos. 

The decision was also reported by the specialized publication Global Arbitration Review.

No confirmation from the Russian side has yet been received.

According to the fund, the court found that "Russia illegally expropriated the loans that Yukos Capital issued to its former parent company, and did not allow justice in this case in Russian courts."

The basis for considering the dispute was the Energy Charter Treaty.

Moscow signed it in 1994, temporarily applied it, but did not ratify it.

Yukos Capital initiated arbitration against the Russian Federation in 2013, initially claiming $ 13 billion.

In December, Justice Minister Konstantin Chuichenko commented on RT on the Yukos case in the Netherlands.
