Ilyashev & Partners has persuaded the District Administrative Court of Kyiv to suspend the June 9, 2020 decision of the General Director of Ukroboronprom, Aivaras Abromavicius dismissing firm client Oleksandr Donets, the president of the Antonov State Enterprise.
Ilyashev & Partners describes Donets as "a well-known specialist in the aviation industry with extensive work experience who started his career at SE Antonov in 1988 as a ground engineer." According to the firm, "later he held senior positions at Kyiv Aviation Plant Aviant, the State Aviation Enterprise Ukraine, and SE UkSATSE. Since May 2018, he has been occupying the position of the president of SE Antonov."
The Antonov State Enterprise has been a client of Ilyashev & Partners since 1998.
According to Ilyashev & Partners, "the court upheld the motion of Mr. Donets filed within his claim against the unlawfulness of the Order of Aivaras Abromavicius. The court also imposed a prohibition to perform any actions directed at changing any information about the president of SE Antonov contained in the state register, as well as to delete the information from the register about Mr. Donets as the head of the State Enterprise."
“Pursuant to the Administrative Court Procedure Code, the court's ruling came into force immediately after the moment it was issued, [so] Mr. Donets is currently the only lawful and rightful head of SE Antonov," commented Ilyashev & Partners Senior Partner Roman Marchenko. "Any person who is going to interfere with the activities of the president of SE Antonov will be subject to criminal liability under Article 382 of the Criminal Code, 'failure to abide by a court decision,' which is punishable by imprisonment for up to eight years."
