In April 2016 JSC “OTP Bank” stated that JSC “Zaporizhzhya Abrasive Plant” is part of the business-group under influence of David Zhvania and Mykola Martynenko. So read the letter of the bank to the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko stating that in 2008 enterprise LLC "Unisteel"  have opened credit lines for the purchase of equipment for production of galvanized steel sheet (USD 18 mln USD and UAH 43 mln). Enterprise has been using the loan in several tranches during 5 years – from 2008 to 2013. From 2013 enterprise stopped payments, creating debt for the amount equivalent to more than UAH 200 mln.

The letter, signed by the Head of the Board of the Bank Tamas Hak-Kovac, also explains why OTP Bank decided to issue a loan to a little-known company. “A decisive argument became the fact that the enterprise is connected with industry giants JSC “Kryvyi Rih Turbine Plant “Konstar” and JSC “Zaporizhzhya Abrasive Plant”, that have production lines and liquid property. These enterprises and Unisteel are part of the business group that is under influence of Zhvania and Martynenko. Enterprises mentioned in the letter were the guarantors of the borrower. Zaporizhzhya Abrasive Plant made financial guarantees, and Konstar made property ones. The production line of Unisteel, for which the most part of the loan was spent, was installed on the territory of turbine plant.
