dtek.com DTEK Energy in January-March 2018 (Q1) improved its financial performance by excluding from its financial statements its enterprises located in the temporarily occupied territories in Donetsk and Luhansk regions. In the first quarter of 2017, loss of control over the said enterprises led to losses estimated at UAH 6.9 billion (US$264 million). Stabilization of national currency was another contributing factor.

Due to said factors, DTEK Energy posted UAH 4.3 billion ($164.5 million) in profit in Q1 2018.
