On Friday, November 26, DTEK's Eurobonds lost more than 11% of their value. This is evidenced by data from the Tradingview.com exchange quotation service.
The drop in the value of DTEK's Eurobonds came after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that close entourage and Russian representatives are trying to implicate DTEK owner Rinat Akhmetov in preparing a coup.
"We have audio information where representatives of Russia and Rinat Akhmetov are discussing a coup in Ukraine. I believe that this is a set-up by Rinat Akhmetov," the president said.
According to Zelenskyy, he invited Akhmetov to Bankova "to listen to this information" or to the relevant bodies.
The head of the state noted that first of all it is about the change of the country's leadership and about the election of a new president. He believes that some people are trying to draw Rinat Akhmetov into the fight against the incumbent president. And Zelenskyy specified that he "does not believe in coups d'etat".
Earlier, "Servants of the People" announced a boycott of Akhmetov's TV channels and refused to go on the air of programs, saying that "the owner deliberately turns the media into his corporate loudspeaker to blackmail the state and society."
According to the "servants," there is a systematic and deliberate spreading of fakes, manipulation, and public unwarranted insults of "those who disturb the oligarch" on the air of "Ukraine" against the background of the failure to provide the right of reply.
Rinat Akhmetov is far ahead of all other Ukrainian businessmen in terms of his wealth. In particular, the Novoe Vremya magazine in its ranking for 2021, published in November, raised the oligarch's fortune from last year's 6.6bn dollars to 11.5bn dollars. In Forbes.ua's ranking published in early May, Akhmetov had "only" 7.6 billion dollars. However, in September, Focus magazine estimated Akhmetov's fortune already at 10.6bn dollars.
