Ukrainian Billionaires Exchanged Luxury London Real Estate in Secret Settlement

Journalists have called the case one of the most expensive in British history: One Ukrainian businessman demanded US $2 billion from two others in the London High Court in a dispute over one of their home country’s largest iron ore processing operations. The three reached a secret settlement several days before the trial. But reporters found the details of that settlement, which involved two high-value buildings in the heart of London, in the Paradise Papers documents.
