Moscow court declares Kogalymavia airline bankrupt
MOSCOW, February 13 (RAPSI) – The Moscow Commercial Court has declared Kogalymavia airline bankrupt, RAPSI has learnt in the court.
Earlier, hearings over the airline’s bankruptcy have been repeatedly postponed. Kogalymavia’s lawyer has stated that the company is ready to pay its debts but needs time.
On April 21, 2017, the court launched bankruptcy proceedings against the company on the request of Russia’s Federal Tax Service. According to the case documents, the Service’s motion was filed because the airline did not pay obligatory payments for obligatory medical and pension insurance in 2014-2015.
In January 2018, the court dismissed a motion filed by a Turkish company that sought to include a 3.7 billion-ruble (about $64.1 million) debt in the demands list of the airline’s creditors.
