A security is a document drafted in the required form and, subject to the mandatory details, evidencing pecuniary rights that may only be exercised or transferred upon presentation of such document.

Securities can be divided into 2 main categories: issued securities and non-issued securities.

Conflicts arising from securities and rights thereto, are in the competence of both arbitrazh courts and courts of general jurisdiction depending on the subject of conflict. Such conflicts are: recognition of title to securities by virtue of inheritance, registrar’s duty to make an entry in the securities register, recovery of dividend, as well as conflicts arising from securities issuance.
