“We have a design, when in some regions formed a monopoly structure with an established supply chain, which is aimed at increasing the cost. Even a vertically integrated company in accordance with the antitrust laws have to adapt. But we’re going to deal with this very serious”, — said the head of “Rosneft”.
Estimated Sechin, independent networks owns a share of 30% of the market. “Those 30% just affect pricing, because they are supported by the Federal Antimonopoly service. If we give you a lower price, then immediately get on the antitrust proceedings. So, even forced to raise the price,” he said.
