Individuals can now go bankrupt
A law on personal bankruptcy has come into force in Russia, and since that time, already in the Samara Region the Arbitration Court has received about a hundred requests for the bankruptcy of individuals, with the majority of these appeals coming from the debtors themselves. Although several petitions against individuals were also launched by the banks. However, according to some experts, credit institutions, for the time being, have taken a wait-and-see attitude. In general, representatives of the banking sector, questioned by Kommersant-Bank, and lawyers have positive opinions of this new law, although they have noted that there are some controversial points, and the document is still subject to new amendments.
