The cassation supported the position of the FAS in the dispute with the participants of the collusion in the coal supply market. The Arbitration Court of the Moscow District overturned the decision of the court of first instance and the decision of the court of appeal and adopted a new judicial act in favor of the department in the case, the FAS said in a statement.

Recall that the FAS recognized PJSC "TGK-2", JSC "Arkhoblenergo" and LLC " TEK " violated the antimonopoly legislation. The companies concluded an anti-competitive agreement among themselves and created preferential conditions for TEK to participate in tenders for the supply of coal for the needs of thermal power plants located in the Arkhangelsk, Novgorod and Yaroslavl regions. The total amount of contracts amounted to 1.55 billion rubles.

During the consideration of the case, the agency also found that the inflated prices of contracts concluded as a result of the procedures under consideration, among other things, formed the basis for calculating tariffs for thermal energy for 2020 in the Arkhangelsk region.

Cases of an administrative offense have been initiated against the parties to the agreements. Fines totaling 431 million rubles were imposed on the companies.
