Оспаривание сделок в российском суде в рамках иностранного банкротства
The article addresses the special features of avoidance transactions of a foreign insolvent debtor for alienation of property within Russian Federation. The author argues that the power of the foreign insolvency administrator to bring a claim to challenge the transaction stems from the Arts. 1195 - 1197 and 1202 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation regarding the law applicable to the legal capacity of a person. On the separate line the article discusses the issue of law applicable to challenging of various categories of transactions of a foreign debtor. Based on the analysis of the doctrine and judicial practice, the author comes to the conclusion that transactions concluded by a foreign debtor after the introduction of a bankruptcy procedure may be challenged in a Russian court on the basis of the limitation of the legal capacity of a foreign person (Arts. 1195 - 1197 and 1202 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation). At the same time, foreign bankruptcy legislation cannot be applied to avoidance of real estate transactions concluded before the introduction of bankruptcy procedure against a foreign debtor due to paragraph 2 of Art. 1213 of the Civil Code of the Russian Federation. The article is concluded with an analysis of the issue of jurisdiction of the claim for challenging the transaction of a foreign insolvent debtor.
