Mr. Justice Teare :
The amount sought
Apportionment of costs between this case and Mr. Deripaska's s.67 arbitration claim
Is it probable that an order for security in an amount in excess of £1.1 million would stifle the claim ?
"My solicitors and I have approached the representatives of Mr. Deripaska to request that he assist me with the provision of security. We were recently informed that he had not agreed to do so."
The counterclaim of the First and Second Defendants
"There is no world in which my client would be pursuing a counterclaim for a declaration against Ms. Danilina that she does not own things to which he does not have title if she hadn't been suing him."
"a declaration that the present proceedings have been instigated and prosecuted pursuant to a corrupt and abusive arrangement between Mrs. Danilova and Mr. Deripaska for the collateral purpose of frustrating the Defendants' claims against Mr. Deripaska in Arbitral proceedings and/or the enforcement of awards obtained by them in those proceedings. The Defendants hereby give notice that they intend, following the conclusion of the present proceedings, to issue proceedings against Mrs. Danilova and Mr. Deripaska for tortious damages and/or contempt of court by reference to their participation in that corrupt and abusive arrangement and expressly reserve all their rights in that regard."
The intention of the First and Second Defendants
Possible security for a non-party security for costs order against Mr. Deripaska
