"The applications were filed in accordance with Part 3 of Article 206 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine foreseeing the demand to terminate doing business linked to a threat of violence and the seizure of property by an organized group of persons. DTEK asked the National Police to launch a pretrial investigation and take measures not to allow the unlawful use of the seized property," the company said in a press release.
