Преимущественное право при приватизации: pro et contra.
The article examines the issue of sale of the state-owned (municipal) share in common real estate ownership and its acquisition by the other participants of common ownership without bidding but through the pre-emptive right in compliance with the legislation on privatisation. Therefore, the author analyses the statutory regulation of privatisation of a share in common ownership, and examines the ratio of the norms in civil and privatisation laws. The pre-emptive right is evaluated and its category is recognised by privatisation legislation. The author determines the essence of trading and analyses the requirement to follow the rules of antitrust and privatisation laws. The conflicting decisions and arguments from two courts are reviewed focusing on the necessity of ensuring both public and private interests of those involved. A summary is provided for the points of view of public officials and other courts including the Supreme Court. Finally, the author concludes that it is necessity to use the pre-emptive right of other participants in common real estate ownership in the case of acquisition of a state-owned (municipal) share in it.
