The Federal Antimonopoly Service has opened a case against Sberbank and Sberbank Insurance, which may be subject to turnover penalties from the amount of revenue on the market. This is stated in the message of the FAS.

Earlier, the service received appeals from citizens about the imposition of a package of services "Domclick Plus", which includes a life and health insurance policy from Sberbank and other services. This package provides a 1% discount on the interest rate under the mortgage loan agreement with Sberbank.

According to the FAS, the offer of Sberbank and Sberbank Insurance to get a loan on more favorable terms only in the case of purchasing additional services from an insurer determined by the bank limits other market participants and citizens.
