Novgorod OFAS found that the company violated the Federal Law “On Protection of Competition”

The antimonopoly body opened a case upon complaint from “Elkom” Ltd. Prior to initiating the proceedings Novgorod OFAS issued a warning to “Novgorodoblenergo” JSC requesting to stop the violations voluntarily. The company, however, failed to execute the warning.
