In July 2008 Sberbank opened $ 500 million credit line for Techinvest, for a period of five years. Τhe amount of the credit would have been sufficient for completion of Eurasia Tower. But in the first half of 2009 Sberbank suspended financing of the project and the construction was discontinued. Fuks referred freeze on the loan to the current financial crisis. The company managed to build five underground floors and forty four overground floors. Negotiations on the debt between Sberbank and Techinvest are being carried on. 100% of Eurasia tower serve as collateral for the loan. However, BTA Bank planned to take over half of the project. The bank applied to the High Court in London and sought to protest a deal made by former president Mukhtar Ablyazov who had sold 50% of Techinvest company to Fuks.
