“Enterprises that work in the people's republic must pay taxes to its budget,” he said.Earlier, Donetsk Mayor Alexander Lukyanchenko reported in a statement on his website that unidentified armed people had entered the building of the branch of Ukraine’s National Bank in the Donetsk Region.
DTEK is the largest privately-owned vertically-integrated energy company in Ukraine, whose enterprises extract coal and operate on electrical power generation and supply markets.
The company, owned by Ukrainian multi-billionaire Rinat Akhmetov, is the energy division of System Capital Management (SCM), one of Ukraine’s leading financial and industrial groups.
