Over Two Years, the Share of Private Debt Collectors Grew Four Times

The number of debts in the Unified Registry of Debtors increased by 60% from the start of this year—while it was 4.2 million in January, October saw 6.8 million debts.

Since 2017, not only the state enforcement service but also private executors collect debts. It is an example of a partnership between the state and private businesses where the latter perform the functions of the former. Similarly to a state enforcement service, a private collector can arrest the debtors’ accounts, as well as seize and put up their property at auction, etc. The number of debt collection proceedings by private collectors doubled in 2021—from 278,000 to 547,000, showing a 95% increase.
