Round Table on Protection of Investments on Occupied Territories

October 13, 2017

MARCHENKO DANEVYCH is pleased to invite you to attend the Round Table on Protection of Investments on Occupied Territories of Crimea and Donbas from leading experts in the field. The event will take place on Thursday, November 2, from 4:00 pm till 8:00 pm at Hyatt Regency Kyiv (London Hall).

After occupation and annexation of Crimea and occupation of territories of Donetsk and Luhansk Regions, a wave of “nationalisations” and other forms of direct and indirect expropriation took place on these territories. The event is focused on the mechanisms of the investor-state dispute settlement for Ukrainian and international investors to claim compensation for damages from the occupants and hurdles the investors might face on their quest for justice.

Key issues:

1. Jurisdiction of arbitral tribunals in investment treaty cases against the Russian Federation for expropriations in Crimea

2. Occupation of the Donbas Region by the Russian Federation from international law perspective

3. Responsibility of the Russian Federation for expropriation of investments in Donbas under Ukrainian BITs

4. Procedure and practical aspects of BIT claims against Russia in relation to Donbas

5. Application of war clauses to claims related to investments destroyed in Donbas
