FIFA 2018 World Cup: advertising restrictions

Liquidation as a means of resolving corporate conflict
Since 2014, in cases where corporate conflict blocks a company's activities, Russian law has allowed company members to demand the company's judicial liquidation.
Before the change in the law a company undergoing extended internal corporate conflict was virtually doomed to bankruptcy, and company members were liable for huge material losses. The situation has now changed.
Liquidation as a means of resolving conflict can bring corporate disputes to an end at an early stage and allow property to be distributed between company members after any settlements with creditors.
