KIEV, April 22. /TASS/. The richest Ukrainians have lost one third of their fortune and only four billionaires from five managed to keep their status over the preceeding year, the rating of Ukrainian Focus journal said on Friday.
"The total sum of the richest Ukrainians dropped by more than 30% to $23.8 billion," the statement said, adding that from five billionaires in 2015 only four managed to save their fortune.
According to media reports, the reason behind the fact is a deep economic crisis in Ukraine. The national Ukrainian currency hryvnia has depreciated by 48% over the last year. The conflict in the Donbass region also affected the incomes by "the transitional war" with Russia.
The statistics shows, the four billionaires failed to expand their capitals in 2015.
