Ukrainian court orders state-owned company to pay millions to militants – media
The Economic Court of Luhansk region has ordered the Ukrainian Luhansk Oblavtodor company to pay UAH 2.1 million to LLC Donkub, which is located in the territory occupied by the "LPR" militants and which was seized in 2016 by pro-Russian terrorists, according to Chetverta Vlada online media outlet.
It is noted that one of the founders of the enterprise in 2016 applied to the Prosecutor General's Office and the SBU Security Service of Ukraine on the fact of seizure of property. However, the Luhansk court ruled that LLC Donkub, which had been seized by militants, was a creditor of the Luhansk Avtodor state enterprise and the state enterprise must pay off its UAH 2.08 million debt.
It is also known that the legal address of LLC Donkub is in the town of Perevalsk, which is now a militant-controlled territory. The publication notes that "thus, the Ukrainian court actually played a giveaway with the representatives of the [illegal] armed groups, and the Ukrainian state will have to transfer the money to the separatists."

However, as the outlet notes, the SBU in Luhansk region considered the information provided by the militants insufficient to initiate a pre-trial investigation into the seizure of LLC Donkub.
