Dynamics of the received cases

In 2020, the number of received cases increased by 3,7 million compared to 2019. The categories of cases in which the number of proceedings increased indicate problems that have exacerbated in a difficult 2020.

In particular, a significant increase in claims for housing payments and debts for housing and communal services indicates a decrease in the solvency of citizens.
At the same time, the number of claims in the field of labor relations has fallen.

Tax evasion, the use of fraudulent schemes for money laundering, financial pyramids are classified as criminal cases in the field of economics. The number of such cases remains at a high level, which confirms the need to check counterparties and related persons.

The amounts awarded by the courts for recovery are less than those stated. Picture 3 below reflects the dynamics over three periods: 2019-2020-2021 (forecast).
