BREAKING: Ukrainian oligarchs Igor Kolomoisky & Gennadiy Bogolyubov, who formerly owned the country's largest commercial lender Privatbank, have lost an appeals case to have nearly $2bn in frozen assets released.

The men oversaw the alleged theft of $5.5 billion from the bank.
Privatbank was nationalized in December 2016 after auditors discovered that the money—which amounts to roughly 5% of the country's GDP—was gone.

It is now trying to recover those assets.
If you are interested in learning more, our April investigation by @carmichaelstack traced the mechanism that appears to have allowed the two oligarchs to funnel such vast wealth out of Ukraine.
