Bank Basis was founded in 1992 by the Arsen Avakov’s holding Investor JSC

In 2012, the National Bank of Ukraine introduced a temporary administration in Commercial Bank “Basis” JSC  and recalled its banking license. Basis started the procedure of liquidation. This happened after a criminal case was initiated against Avakov and he fled to Italy in the so called political emigration.

On 21 October 2014, Kyiv Appellate Administrative Court kept in force the decree of the District Administrative Court of Kyiv of 14 August 2014 on the cancellation of the Decree of the National Bank of Ukraine on recalling the banking license and appointment of the liquidator of the Bank Basis. The decision was adopted based on the appeal of lawyers of Avakov’s wife. 

Journalists recorded, that as of the end of 2015 the controlling block of shares of “Basis” belonged to a little known company Bio-M from the front-line city of Bakhmut. Its founder is Eugene Pylypenko, whose son Yuriy has previously worked at Basis as a security guard. After that numerous realty objects were re-registered from the property of the bank to Zuma Invest Capital LLC. Cost of this realty amounted to millions and could cover expenses incurred by the state on the indemnity of the depositors of "Basis".

Founder of Zuma Invest Capital LLC is the company Zumaville Holdings Limited registered in Cyprus at the very same business-center as Ulisse Management Limited and Fontana Management Limited, beneficiary of which is Arsen Avakov since November 2016.

On 27 July 2017, by the decision of an Economic Court of Donetsk Region the case on bankruptcy of  Basis JCB  was initiated. A lawyer Ihor Mykhalyov became initiator of the bankruptcy procedure
