The new Decree of the Russian President of 27.05.2022 № 322 established a special order of payments in favor of some categories of right holders on the obligations in the sphere of intellectual property.

The Decree is largely similar to the previously introduced procedure with the use of type “C” accounts and provides for the transfer of funds for the use of intellectual property in Russian rubles to a special type “O” account opened in the name of the right holder. The withdrawal of funds from the type "O" account to another account of the right holder is allowed only with the permission of the Government Commission.

The rights holders to whom payments must be made under a special procedure include those from unfriendly countries and companies under their control, as well as rights holders who advocated the imposition of sanctions on Russia, rights holders who have terminated, suspended or substantially curtailed their activities in Russia, and rights holders brought to administrative responsibility for discrediting the Russian armed forces or contempt of state power or criminal responsibility for spreading fakes about the actions of the Russian army.

On April 28, 2022, the Arbitration Court of the Novosibirsk Region issued a ruling in case No. A45-6357/2022. The Court allowed our client's claims to compel the joint-stock company Angioline China Distribution to holding a special general meeting of shareholders.

The adopted decision has the great importance for the corporate conflict solution that has been going on for several years. The decisions to be taken at the Special General Shareholders' Meeting will stabilize corporate governance in the joint-stock company and end the internal crisis caused by the actions of the opponents. The position of the court also confirms the unconditional right of the shareholder to demand the holding of a special general meeting of shareholders, which does not depend on the presence or absence of a board of directors in the company.

Alan Bayramkulov, Irina Martvel, and Ilya Kozhinov worked on the project.
