On August 2, 2017, the Supreme Economic Court of Ukraine upheld the decision of the economic courts of previous instances, according to which the land of the Heavenly Hundred Heroes square was returned to the ownership of the city of Kyiv.
The court dismissed the representative's complaint of the company-developer on the grounds of lack of evidence and groundlessness.
Trusted Advisors’ team in the person of managing partner Ivan Mishchenko and associate Daria Korotchenko represented the interests of the NGO «Misto-Sad» as a third party on the side of the plaintiff.
As Ivan Mischenko noted after the meeting: "The complicated process of returning the land to the city's property has come to a logical conclusion. Moreover, we are very pleased with such positive court decision, because this is not only a great victory for the residents of Kyiv but also an exemplary case for the entire judicial system. Thus, it is also demonstrating that the cooperation of law firms and state organizations can create a successful legal precedent".
In addition, the head of the public organization "Misto-Sad" Yevgeniya Kuleba commented: "The lawsuits have become a test for Kiev as for stability and endurance for almost 4 years. During this time, the whole Ukraine and the world learned about the Heavenly Hundred Heroes square. For our team, our partners, and all those who supported us, it was of fundamental importance to obtain evidence of a violation of the law when selling historical land in the center of the Kyiv. For us, it was and is important not only to preserve the Square, the place of memory but also to fix the cause and effect relationship between the violation of the law and the punishment for this violation".
