Court rules in favor of FAS

The 17th Arbitration/Appeals Court ruled in favor of the Federal Antimonopoly Service’s Sverdlovsk Region division’s verdict on October 21, 2009. The FAS division had demanded that MRSK Urala stop making Uralelectromed buy their services.

The FAS declared on March 26, 2009 that MRSK Urala violated Article 10 (part 1, paragraph 3) of the Federal Competition Protection Act 135-FZ as of July 26, 2006. The violation allegedly consisted in the company forcing their customer Uralelectromed to agree to the electricity supply terms that were not really suitable for the latter. Namely, the company wanted the customer to pay for the technological hookup when Uralelectromed asked to increase the available power peak.
