Antonov aircraft company ordered to pay $2.8 mln to Russian Defense Ministry
MOSCOW, November 21 (RAPSI) – The Moscow Commercial Court ruled on Monday in favor of Russia’s Defense Ministry and ordered Antonov aircraft plant in Ukraine to pay 180 million rubles ($2.8 million), according to court records.
The Defense Ministry filed the suit in July 2015 seeking 357.4 million rubles ($5.5 million) from Ukrainian plant in interest payments.
Antonov is implicated in several other disputes in Russia.
Notably, Antonov won a $2.9 million judgement in July against Aviacor Aviation Plant in the Commercial Court of Samara Region. The trademark infringement suit was heard behind closed doors.
The judgement was upheld in October by the Eleventh Commercial Court of Appeals.
However, Antonov failed to collect 146.4 million rubles in royalty payments under a license agreement from OJSC Voronezh Aircraft Joint-Stock Company. The Commercial Court of Voronezh Region dismissed the suit.
