You're reading: New director registered for Ukraina mall, fight for control continues
on social media

Rostyslav Levinzon said he is now
legally in charge of the estimated $78 million shopping mall in downtown Kyiv, more than a year
after he was first appointed to the post by a company affiliated with the
state-owned Irish Bank Resolution Corporation, which laid claim to the mall as
part of a debt recovery plan. The bank has nearly 93 percent ownership in Ukraina

However, the mall has been the subject
of a drawn-out ownership dispute and litigation between the bank and, ultimately,
the mall’s former owner, the bankrupted former billionaire Irishman Sean
Quinn Sr. and his family. 

Levinzon told Kommersant Ukraina that he
has yet to gain access to the management office of the mall despite being officially registered as the director by a government company registrar agency on
Feb. 4 after several court injunctions initially were made in January to remove pre-existing legal obstacles.
