AMC could fine two Kyiv hotels 5% of revenue for untruthful information about 'stars'
The Kyiv regional territorial department of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine (AMC) could fine two Kyiv hotels for untruthful information about their category (the number of "stars") posted by the hotels on their websites, the AMC press service has reported.
"In the course of studying [the Kyiv hotel market for the price increase during UEFA], the department [of the AMC] revealed that a number of business entities ... spread false information about the category of hotels ["stars"]. Due to the spread of such information, business entities have undue advantages in competition," the head of the Kyiv branch of the AMC, Oleksiy Khmelnytsky, said.
According to him, the Kyiv regional territorial department of the AMC is considering cases of untruthful information on the establishment of categories ("stars") on the facades and websites of the Adria and Staro hotels. He noted that this violation provides for a fine of 5% of the company's revenue for the previous year.
"Now the study on the dissemination of similar false information by other business entities is ongoing," Khmelnytsky added.
