Lawyer Michael Mozhayev told the publication that to resolve similar issues are managed after the courts with “Peacemaker” and the Bank filed claims on protection of honor and dignity. According to him, such a lawsuit can take from two months to a year.

“In the era of constant attacks and break-ins, people cannot be called terrorists on the basis of data on some website. Hackers break into protected systems and resources. And there is no guarantee that someone’s name will not appear in some lists by mistake or with malicious intent. Because banks are required to contact law enforcement to confirm their fears they have, and only then with an appropriate resolution to block the bill. Not before,” said Mozhayev.

Lawyer Victor Moroz noted that the situation with the blocking of accounts “can go wild”.

“When I approached the owner of a “Peacemaker” with a request for his client, the answer came to me that if I’m going to protect individuals involved in terrorism, then he will get a list of the site”, – said the lawyer.

The website of the volunteer centre “the Peacemaker” is valid from the spring of 2014. Activists claim that contribute to the database project helpers of terrorists of Donbass and those who came to the occupied Crimea contrary to Ukrainian law.

“PrivatBank” has become the property of the state 18 December 2016.
