There was no additional detail regarding the mechanism of compensation for the unconditional transfer of UkrNafta (UNAF) and Motor Sich (MSICH) shares to the state account managed by the Defense Ministry. The Ukrainian Exchange said it removed UkrNafta and Motor Sich from the listing. Currently, there are two main scenarios for compensation for the transferred shares. The first one is that the state will return the seized shares back to shareholders after martial law would be lifted in Ukraine. The second scenario foresees that the state will pay for the seized shares. However, the state could explore other options for limiting potential disputes regarding the seizure of UkrNafta and Motor Sich shares.
