On July 4, the Commercial Court of Kyiv City opened proceedings in case No. 910/7338/19 on the claim of the Guarantee Fund against Mykola Lahun for recovery of UAH 691.3 million "of damage caused to a legal entity by its official" (quote).

According to the court materials, the Guarantee Fund stated that the claims will be included in the liquidation balance sheet of Delta Bank.

On mid-March 2018, Delta Bank`s refinancing debt amounted to UAH 8 billion. In 2016, the National Bank reported on attempts to recover UAH 767 million from Lahun under a property warrant (land plots).

According to Deposit Guarantee Fund, as of January 1, 2019, the depositors of Delta Bank received UAH 15.7 bln. of guarantee amount (in total these payments will amount to UAH 16.2 bln.).

As Finbalance wrote, on April 1, 2019, the Pivnichnyi Commercial Court of Appeal refused to satisfy the appeal of Deposit Guarantee Fund and left unchanged the resolution of the Commercial Court of Kyiv City dd. 10.12.2018 (case No. 910/14734/18), which returned to the Fund its statement of claim to the former shareholders and top managers of Kreditprombank (including Mykola Lahun) on recovery of UAH 532.9 million.

On March 19, 2019, the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv City partially satisfied the claim of Ukreximbank against Mykola Lahun (in case No. 757/3996/15-ц) and resolved to recover from the defendant in favor of the plaintiff the debt under the loan agreement No. 151311K25 dd. 29.12.2011 in the amount of USD 38.3 mln and UAH 19.3 mln. At the same time, the court rejected the counterclaim of Lahun to Ukreximbank on recognition of the surety agreement as invalid.

On October 11, 2017, the Supreme Court canceled the decision of the Superior Specialized Court for Civil and Criminal Cases dd. 15.02.2017 in the case No. 757 / 22651/15-ц and upheld the decision of the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv City dd. 12.03.2016 and the decision of the Court of Appeal of Kyiv City dated 12.03.2016 and the resolution of the Kyiv City Court of Appeal dated 05.10.2016, according to which Mykola Lahun, as a guarantor of Delta Bank`s debt obligations (under the contracts of correspondent account as of 2010-2011), shall return USD 111.8 million, EUR 12.45 million and UAH 948 million (over UAH 4 billion) to Oschadbank.

On January 9, 2019, the Kyiv City Court of Appeal by its ruling (the unchanged resolution of the Supreme Court dd. 28.02.2019) satisfied the appeal of Mykola Lahun and annulled the resolution of the Pechersk District Court of Kyiv City dd. 19.09.2018 which refused opening of proceedings in the case of the former owner of Delta Bank No. 757 / 44918/18-ts on his lawsuit against Oschadbank for invalidation of the surety agreement (Delta Bank is the third party to the dispute).

On April 26, 2019, the District Administrative Court of Kyiv City satisfied the claim of Kalouma Holding Limited and cancelled the resolution of the NBU No. 186 dd. 19.03.2015 on classifying Astra Bank (part of Delta Bank Group, the majority shareholder of which was Mykola Lahun) into the category of insolvent (case No. 826/8333/15).
