Gaat Rusland echt 37 miljard betalen aan Yukos-eigenaren?

According to news reports on 28 July 2014, Russia lost an ongoing legal case to the former shareholders of oil company Yukos, forcing the government to pay a record 50 billion dollars in compensation. The decision was passed down by the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, ending a lawsuit that began in 2005. The court ruled unanimously that the dissolution of Yukos, once the largest oil company in Russia, was politically motivated. Yukos was dissolved by the Russian government in 2003 after its chief executive, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, was found guilty of tax evasion. He served nine years in prison.

Maar gaat dat geld ooit overgemaakt worden en wat kunnen de aandeelhouders zelf doen om dat voor elkaar te krijgen? De zaak-Yukos in één minuut.
