Antitrust sees Tele2Тs reduced tariffs for Crimea as justified
MOSCOW, Feb 9 (PRIME) -- RussiaТs Federal Antimonopoly Service has found new reduced tariffs of mobile operator T2 RTK Holding, working as Tele2, in Crimea as economically justified, but does not rule out issuing a warrant to bigger operators MTS and MegaFon, which have not cut tariffs yet, the authority said on Friday in a statement.
T2 RTK Holding said on Wednesday that it will reduce tariffs for its subscribers when they are in Crimea and the city of Sevastopol starting from February 15.
The service is studying cases against MTS and MegaFon.
УIf tariffs for connection services in Crimea are found as economically unjustified, the (serviceТs) commission is authorized to issue a warrant to MegaFon and MTS, including on a transfer of illegally received incomes to the budget of the Russian Federation,Ф the antitrust serviceТs Deputy Director Anatoly Golomolzin said, as quoted in the statement.
