MOSCOW, September 7 (RAPSI) – The Sverdlovsk Region Commercial Court has dismissed a bankruptcy petition filed by Alfa Bank against large industrial corporation “Uralvagonzavod” without prejudice, the court documents read on Wednesday.
Reasons for declining to review the petition are unknown. Yet, during the previous hearings Uralvagonzavod asked court not to review the petition because of lawsuits filed with the Chelyabinsk Commercial Court over recovery of debts. Proceedings in those lawsuits have not been halted despite the bankruptcy petition. Next hearings in the lawsuits are set for September 27.
