Governor Sumin and Anna Kozlova attempt to sustain prices

Governor of Chelyabinsk Region Petr Sumin met Head of Chelyabinsk Region’s division of the Federal Antimonopoly Service Anna Kozlova to look into the Service’s local performance. Ms Kozlova reported on the ongoing monitoring of the antimonopoly and advertising legislation in the region as well on the fines imposed on the detected offenders and the current lawsuits.

The major point on the meeting’s agenda, however, had to do with the possible measures that could help sustain food, medication, gasoline, and fuel gas prices. Kozlova suggested that an interdepartmental committee (set up two years before) should resume its work and start surveying the local food markets. She also came up with a regional competition promotion proposal as well as some legal drafts that could enforce stricter punishment for violating the antimonopoly regulations.

According to the spokesperson for the Governor, Petr Sumin agreed with the antimonopoly service’s activity’s importance in the course of the meeting and supported Ms Kozlova’s ideas. The Governor said trying to reach anti-competitive agreements on the food and medication markets was their top priority at the moment.
