FAS supported the indexation of freight tariffs of the railway is not more than 5.5%


Moscow. November 20. The Federal Antimonopoly service (FAS) of the Russian Federation insists on indexation of freight tariffs of the JSC “RZD” in 2016 at the level not more than 5.5%, supports indexing the gas at 2%, said the head of the Department Igor Artemyev.

“The dispute is not finished on the occasion the railway fare, because we continue to believe that 10% or 9%, which are incorporated in the forecast now, is a lot. We talk about what we have reason to assume that it should not be more than 5,5%”, – told reporters Artemyev.

“As for gas, this topic has been less discussed: we supported the proposal of the Ministry of economy on a two per cent indexation. Well, imagine what 2% with inflation at 12.2% – this means that the price for population will not grow”, – said the head of FAS.
