Krasnodar, 16 August – Yug Times. In the Kuban region, the natural monopolies tend to refuse to conclude contracts on technical connection or try to extremely complicate the very process of connection. All measures taken by the regional branch of the Federal Antimonopoly Service in the context of administrative procedure did not bounce back on them – the number of violations continues to grow, the antimonopoly officials have stated.

Oleg Tikhenky, Head of the regional branch of the Federal Antimonopoly Service, acknowledged the existence of system problems with connections to electric power and gas supply mains: “It can be seen from the claims submitted to our agency. Within our competence, we are struggling to overcome the violations, but we can see that this struggle is not giving meaningful results. The penalties from 300,000 to 1 million roubles imposed on the [power supply] networks were not effective. Now we are moving to tougher measures, namely disqualification of the officials that broke law.”

The regional Department for Investment Policy also expressed its concern, because the situation with connections to the networks directly affect the business climate in the region. Now Kuban has already felt the negative effect related to the behaviour of the natural monopolies. These facts are endangering the future of large-scale investment projects that are being implemented in the region. Meanwhile, the number of such projects grew from 60 in 2017 to 140 in 2018.

“We had always been in the top [decile] of the best regions in terms of business climate,” Head of Department Nikolai Korsakov said. “But this year for the first time, Krasnodar province fell out of the top decile and found itself on the 13th place.
