Law Debenture Trust Corporation plc v Ukraine, represented by the Minister of Finance of Ukraine acting upon the instructions of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine

Practice – Summary judgment. The Commercial Court allowed the claimant trustee's application for summary judgment, in a case concerning an agreement between Russia and Ukraine to subscribe part of Ukraine's debt. Among other things, the transaction was not void because Ukraine had had the capacity to enter into it, and the acts of Russia in invading Crimea and Eastern Ukraine were not capable of establishing a defence of duress for the defendant Ukrainian state.
