DUESSELDORF, Germany, March 12 (Reuters) - E.ON is suffering from weakening currencies in foreign markets, including Russia, Turkey and Brazil, Chief Executive Johannes Teyssen said on Wednesday, but added the long-term growth potential in these countries remained intact.

Teyssen said he saw no impact on its Russian operations from the current political situation in Crimea, adding the business peformance of Brazil's Eneva, in which E.ON holds a 38-percent stake, needed to be improved. (Reporting by Christoph Steitz; Editing by Victoria Bryan)
