"We declared that we do not want disasters, but we only want a legal assessment and after that – an amicable agreement, a way out of this situation. We do not need a bank at any cost," he said on the sidelines of the 16th YES conference organized by the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in Kyiv on Friday.

He did not specify the details of this amicable agreement. "A kind of the amicable agreement, somehow get out of the situation. It cannot be forever in suspense. Today is a good window of opportunity," Kolomoiskyi said.

The businessman added that he was ready to abandon claims for returning to the shareholders of PrivatBank. "Maybe I wanted to [return the bank], but if the situation does not allow it, and this will entail turbulence in the market, then I would not want to," the ex-owner said, explaining his position.

"First of all, we need satisfaction for everything that they said and wrote about us," Kolomoiskyi said.

When asked by journalists, the businessman said that at a recent meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi, the issue of PrivatBank was not discussed.

Kolomoiskyi also said that a possible amicable agreement on the bank is not connected with the lawsuit of Ukrnafta's minority shareholders against Ukraine in the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, where they demand $5.4 billion. "I cannot speak for those who are suing in the Stockholm arbitration tribunal in the Ukrnafta case," the businessman said.

"In principle, if the question is posed this way, then we can discuss it," he said, answering the question whether this could be a single settlement.
