Ukraine International states that the information that UIA account has been attached is inconsistent with the facts and is concerned about the series of publications and pieces in the national mass media aimed at spreading panic among UIA clients, partners and counterparts, as well as inflicting financial loss and hurting business reputation of the leading Ukraine’s carrier.
Over 22 years of operation on aviation market, UIA has not thrown any discredit upon its reliability and responsibility to passengers and fully complied with its obligations to clients, partners, and counterparts. Despite the political and economic crisis UIA makes every effort to maintain the integrity of its domestic and international route network, to operate all flights as scheduled, to implement flexible and sustainable pricing policy offering passengers a number of special ticket fares.
Furthermore, UIA strictly complies with the current legislation of Ukraine and scrupulously satisfies judicial rulings.
Dissemination of false information was prompted by the ruling dated November 18, 2014. The Economic Court of Kiev ordered on interim measures of protection to secure the claim of the First Deputy Prosecutor of Kiev to recover 5.4 million UAH from UIA. Further to the abovementioned, the funds on one of the carrier`s accounts with JSC “Finance and Credit Bank” may be attached. UIA does not acknowledge the debt and it is being challenged at court. Currently, the case is not sealed.
Moreover, UIA deems that the court had no legal basis to take such measures of protection. In this regard the Airline filed the appeal on November 24, 2014.
Currently, UIA keeps on using the bank account in question. However, in case the account is optionally blocked, it will neither freeze UIA`s operations nor break the airline`s flight schedule. Moreover, by no means will it distract UIA from complying with its obligations to passengers, partners, and counterparts.
