NOVO-OGARYOVO, October 15 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has come out against hasty and ill-considered changes in the operation of the electric power grids.
“As for the likely structural changes, they must be well-considered, not impulsive and based on the companies’ practical work for the past few years,” Putin said at a meeting devoted ways of improving the effectiveness of operating electric power industry assets.
Putin recalled the market participants and heads of Russia’s regions kept raising questions of how to better the system of management.
“But that does not mean that we should act off-handedly, without considering well the effects of each of our steps that will be proposed along these lines,” Putin said.
