It states that according to the law, the Deposit Guarantee Fund may initiate proceedings (in particular in foreign and international courts) to recover damages caused to the bank due to: 1) nationalization or expropriation of the bank's assets; 2) requisition, destruction, damage or devaluation of the bank's property due to military actions, armed conflicts and social unrest.

"In addition, the document defines the legal basis for compensation for damages by the person who caused damage to the bank and creditors, as well as the person who received property benefits as a result of such actions. In particular, provides for voluntary compensation for such damage (losses)," the President's Office said.

They also said that the law also clarifies the procedures for withdrawal of an insolvent bank from the market, liquidation of banks, the powers of the Deposit Guarantee Fund, etc.
