A.V. Turbanov Problems of Classification of Legal Entities: Continued Discussion
The author holds the position that it is necessary to determine the public entity structure in the Russian law. Such a status is required for a very limited number of companies whose active participation in the economic turnover results from the fact that they perform public functions: Central Bank of the Russian Federation, Pension Fund of the Russian Federation, Deposit Insurance Agency, etc. As a scientific rationale of the approach, the author gives the statement the legal entity is an inter-industry institution, but not a purely civil one.

G. Nobbe Admissibility of Bank Consideration
The author deals with the stance of German courts as to the admissibility of different considerations in favor of the bank received on the basis of the client agreement (for example, for the account servicing, use of ATMs, issue of account statements, granting of loans, etc.). The main reason for admissibility is that a bank renders to the client a standalone service. This article is especially important in the light of the fact that the Presidium of the Supreme Commercial Court of the Russian Federation is currently preparing a review of the court practice that concerns disputes relating to the application of provisions of the credit agreement laws.

At present, the Constitution Court of the Russian Federation is considering an inquiry submitted by the Supreme Commercial Court of the Russian Federation as to the constitutionality of provisions of the budget laws, according to which the statute of limitations shall not cover the requirements of the Russian Federation relating to granting of budget loans, state guarantees, etc. According to the Supreme Commercial Court of the Russian Federation, this provision with retroactive effect contravenes the constitutional principle for the equal legal protection of all types of property and the legal statements of the European Court of Human Rights on inadmissibility of benefits granted to the government with regard to private matters, and necessity of compliance with the principle of the legal definiteness.
Below is the text of the inquiry filed by the Supreme Commercial Court of the Russian Federation and comments thereto, which inquiry was executed by D.V. Afanasiev and D.V. Novak, the employees for the private law at the Supreme Commercial Court of the Russian Federation.
