Valerii Lukomskyi participated in the press-conference on the issue of NTK Electronprylad

On 29 September 2020, Interfax-Ukraine held a press conference on the lack of executive influence on the personnel policy in the aviation industry. The purpose of the press conference was to protect the interests of the state-operated company and its CEO. Salkom’s senior partner Valerii Lukomskyi and Ihor Misharin, Director of the National Bureau for Investigation of Aviation Incidents and Incidents with Civil Aircraft, were among those who participated in the press-conference.

The participants talked about the crucial importance of the staffing of strategically important enterprises with professional managers for the development of such strategically important industries of Ukraine as aircraft construction. In particular, they discussed the procedure for competitive selection of managers and powers vested in the Cabinet of Ministers to ensure that vacant positions are filled with professional managers.

The current situation at PJSC NTK Electronprylad serves an example of a real competitive selection procedure.



​The responsibility of the State for raider cases that are not investigated

The leader of real estate and construction practice of Salkom Law Firm Tymofii Sykorskiy has analyzed the legal possibilities of state responsibility in connection with unsolved raider crimes.

Less than a month ago, a Temporary Special Commission of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on Investor Protection was established. The first meeting of this body was devoted to contracting of raiding.

As a result of contracting of raiding, businesses often regain their rights in the courts. At the same time, it is often impossible to identify the customers and organizers of these crimes due to the inaction of the investigative bodies. But can business then demand recovery from the state?

Allegedly, the final answer to this question was provided in the Resolution of the Grand Chamber of the Supreme Court of September 3, 2019 in case №916/ 1423/17 (the answer is – no it can’t).

However, everything is not so obvious? It turns out that with proper preparation and with a well-chosen method of protection, this is a completely feasible task.
