Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Columbia (No. 1:17-cv-00582)
Pao Tatneft (Tatneft), a Russian company, filed a petition in district court to confirm and enforce its arbitral award against Ukraine. The district court granted the petition, rejecting Ukraine’s arguments that the court should have declined to enforce the award under The Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (New York Convention), June 10, 1958, 21 U.S.T. 2517, and should have dismissed the petition on the basis of forum non conveniens. As explained infra, we agree with the district court and affirm its judgment.
