Ukravtodor is protesting an arbitration decision ordering it to return €10.3 million to a Chinese company, Sinohydro,

for ending a contract to build the northern bypass of Zhytomyr on the M-06. Six months ago, Ukravtodor ended the contract, charging that the Chinese company completed 49% of the project, far short of the 80% due at the time. Yesterday, Ukravtodor complained on Facebook that Mahadev Gopinat, the arbitrator for International Association of Consulting Engineers, lives in South Africa and never visited the Zhytomyr project.
