It must be mentioned that the company originally estimated total losses from the assets in the occupied areas at almost UAH 7 billion, or US$250 million, in its consolidated report for January-March 2017. Then it reviewed its financial liabilities, as a result of which the amount of the losses was reduced to UAH 3.9 billion in the six months of 2017.
