If Russia pays fine, ends violations competition agency will have no claims against Gazprom
Statements from Russian representatives calling for cancellation of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine's decision to sanction Gazprom are baseless since the commitee's position is absolutely legal, Ukrainian Justice Minister Pavlo Petrenko told journalists on Thursday.
"There is not one body in Ukraine - not the government or the parliament - that has the right to order the cancellation of such decisions by the Antimonopoly Committee. For that reason, I believe these statements from the Russian Federation are groundless and the Antimonopoly Committee's position is absolutely legal. If Russia eliminates those violations that were the grounds for imposing the sanctions, and pays the fine, than they won't have any problems with our antimonopoly bodies," Petrenko said.
