Thus, having refused the Zarnitsa LLC, the manufacturer of the required for delivery equipment, the JSC Russian Railways recognized the organization, which is the dealer of the equipment produced by Zarnitsa LLC, as the winner of the procurement.

The Arbitration Court of the Moscow District supported the decision of the FAS Russia, agreeing that the actions of the customer indicate a formal approach for the consideration of participants' applications and are subjective.

In addition, the cassation confirmed the authority of the FAS Russia to identify violations other than the subject of the complaint, as well as to issue remedies for elimination of such violations.
