The United States handed Russia a subpoena in the Yukos case
According to a report on the status of the case filed in the District of Columbia (Washington) 1 court in July, the US Embassy in Moscow handed over a package of court documents to the Russian side on June 22. We are talking about a petition from Hulley Enterprises, Yukos Universal and Veteran Petroleum (former Yukos shareholders who won 50 billions of dollars plus penalty interest in The Hague) for recognition and enforcement of the award in the United States. Russia was handed a subpoena, which had been going through the US State Department since the beginning of January.
"A State Department spokesman confirmed that the defendant [the Russian Federation] received the court documents on June 22, 2015," said Shearman & Sterling, which represents the former Yukos shareholders, in a report.
US law gives another state two months (60 days) to respond to a lawsuit filed against it. Thus, Russia has the time before August 20 to respond to the “Yukos’s” petition in the United States.
Only the “delivery” of court documents to the Russian side took half a year. Yukos shareholders filed a motion with the Washington court to register the victorious decision of the Hague Arbitration 25 of November last year. Applicants could choose from several delivery methods provided for by US law, but were forced to resort to a diplomatic channel - the transfer of documents through the Department of State. This process was launched on January 7.
The US Embassy in Moscow handed over to the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs copies of the petition and the summons along with their translation into Russian. The cost of delivery "through diplomatic channels" is 2 275 dollars, follows from the materials on the US State Department website.
