                         DTEK raised EUR 416 million

Kyiv, October 18, 2012 - DTEK signed an agreement for a syndicated credit line
of a total  amount of EUR  416 million arranged  by Sberbank CIB,  Gazprombank 
(Open Joint Stock  Company), ING Bank  NV and UniCredit  Bank Austria AG.  The 
facility has two tranches with tenors of three and five years, respectively.

Funds received from the  syndicated loan will be  directed to DTEK  production 
facilities to finance modernization programs and for other purposes.

ING Bank NV  acted as  documentation agent and  UniCredit Bank  Austria AG  as 
information agent.

"DTEK's production  facilities  require  modernization. It  is  the  Company's 
responsibility to ensure necessary funds  are available for investment,"  said 
Vsevolod Starukhin, DTEK's CFO. "Taking  into account the banks'  conservative 
policies on lending for production, this syndicated facility once again proves
the effectiveness  of  DTEK's management  system  - the  transparency  of  our 
business, stability  of our  business  processes and  the reliability  of  our 
results. We are focused on long-term cooperation with banks and interested  in 
expanding the  range  of financial  instruments  that  allow us  to  fund  the 
Company's strategic projects."
