FAS issued a warning based on which the Ministry was supposed to terminated the violation and set the tariffs for “Urals Head Networks” JSC.


He3ad of FAS Department for Regulating the Housing & Utility Sector, Alexei Matuykhin, said:  “The confirmation by the Ministry of Tariff Regulation and the Electric Power Industry of the Chelyabinsk region that FAS warning is executed means that the Antimonopoly Service has restored the legitimate rights of “Urals Head Networks” JSC”.
