Court action against Dmitry Dain terminated

One more conflict in the Russian pharma business has come to an end. The story of the logistics operator Pharmat (Terminal-Vostok Group), and its ex-owner Dmitry Dain began in 2012 and ended in late December 2017. This period was quite eventful with Mr. Dain’s removal from control of the company, bankruptcy, criminal action, court proceedings, temporary detention center, and release. Mr. Dain is happy because justice has been met, and the judiciary and law enforcement systems have proven capable of admitting and eliminating their mistakes. The entrepreneur has decided to come back to business to pursue a digital health project. Importantly, this is not the first case of a top manager coming back to business after court action.
