Ukraine: Country’s first ever Insolvency Code by Anton Molchanov and Anastasia Ivaschenko

On 18 October 2018 a Ukrainian parliament – Verkhovna Rada – adopted the very first Ukrainian Insolvency Code. The adopted Code underwent more than 1 300 amendments of which approximately 40% were rejected. Having an extremely high support from international lenders, such as IMF and WB, the country obtained a brand-new law for dealing with distressed debt, applicable both to natural and legal persons.
