Defense Ministry’s lawsuit against Russian aircraft manufacturer set for October 18
MOSCOW, September 8 (RAPSI) – The Moscow Commercial Court will hold a preliminary hearing in a lawsuit filed by Russia’s Defense Ministry seeking to recover 5.3 billion rubles (about $90.5 million) from Sukhoi Company (JSC), the court’s documents read on Friday.
On August 31, the court registered a claim in this case. Details of the dispute are currently unknown.
In 2015, the Moscow District Commercial Court cancelled proceeding over an appeal filed by Sukhoi against the recovery of 92.7 million rubles (about $1.5 million) in favor of Defense Ministry for failing to provide 10 planes on schedule.
In 2014, the Moscow Commercial Court ruled the aircraft producer to compensate the ministry with 583.3 million rubles (nearly $10 million) but a court of appeals has later changed the ruling.
