EXPLAINING FAS POSITION REGARDING RAILWAY OPERATORS
FAS was not and is not in favour of introducing regulation of the tariffs for the car-provision services. Such interpretation of FAS efforts on monitoring rates and developing e-services in the interests of consumes is quite puzzling. Following the results of an antimonopoly investigation and as part of a tariff campaign, FAS sets requirements to the monopolist – the group of “Russian Railways” but not to private operators. FAS has been actively discussing its draft decisions on a large scale with market participants and typically takes their opinion into consideration when making final decisions. In this context, attempts of some associations to put pressure on tariffs and antimonopoly decisions are unacceptable.
