February 20th, 2024 — The court finds that the Russian Federation did not make a timely appeal on the fraud allegation. In addition, the court finds that certain documents upon which the Russian Federation bases its appeal should have been introduced earlier, that the subject the documents refer to, is not relevant for the judgment of the arbitrators, and that an appeal on alleged fraud would not have been successful because it’s not plausible that the arbitrators would have come to a different decision. Conclusion: the arbitral awards stand.
