«We have survived another extremely difficult year of war. Despite the serious challenges for the country in general and Ukrainian business in particular, we managed to survive and rebuild the company’s operations to meet the new conditions. Despite the problems with asset utilization and the aggressor’s naval blockade, despite the loss of control over assets in Mariupol, the shutdown of Avdiivka Coke Plant and a significant reduction in the number of employees due to the war, Metinvest remains one of the largest taxpayers in Ukraine. And the rejection of tax benefits due to the company under the law allowed us to allocate additional funds to those areas where it is needed most,» Yuriy Ryzhenkov, CEO of the company, comments.
As GMK Center previously reported, in 2022, Metinvest Group, including its associates and joint ventures, paid UAH 20.5 billion in taxes and fees to the budgets of all levels in Ukraine. In the structure of taxes and duties, the largest were income tax (UAH 6.6 billion), unified social contribution (over UAH 4 billion), and personal income tax (UAH 3.7 billion).
