The Ministry of Finance has been informed that citizens receive phone calls made allegedly on behalf of the Ministry of Finance and are offered a compensation for their losses incurred by the JSC “MMM”.
Unknown individuals make calls from the city of Kyiv and tell that the Ministry of Finance is paying out the above “compensation” according to some court decision. They also advise the place where interested persons should come to update their payment receipts and the “tax” they should pay to receive this “compensation”.
In regard to the above, the Ministry of Finance informs that joint-stock companies shall bear responsibility for their obligations by themselves as per article 152 of the Civil Code of Ukraine. Also, given the fact the Ukrainian state did not take over any obligation to make any payments to the shareholders of the JSC “MMM”, the information about the above payments allegedly made by the Ministry of Finance is incorrect.
At the same time, to prevent fraud attempts, we recommend the former shareholders of the JSC “MMM”, who has received the said calls, to contact the law-enforcement authorities.
