MOSCOW, June 6 (Itar-Tass) - The Moscow branch of the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (FAS) has exposed the case of illegal transfer of the state-run premises in Moscow that belong to the federal state unitary enterprise Post of Russia and opened a case over the violation of the law over the protection of competition, the Moscow branch of the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service reported on Thursday.
The case of illegal rent of the premises at a total area of 423 square metres, which are situated in Baumanskaya Street in Moscow, was opened upon the pleas from physical and legal entities, the Moscow FAS branch noted. In their view, the transfer of premises affects negatively the work of the postal services, “because the lack of necessary premises hampers to organize the work of officials in the way so that people will not line up in queues.” Meanwhile, the placement of the advertisements of commercial organizations on the facade of the building impedes to find the place of the very post office.
The Post of Russia as an unitary enterprise owns and uses Russian property, but when the rights over state property are transferred the competitive procedure should be observed to provide for its publicity and transparency in order to create equal conditions for physical and legal entities to receive the rights over state property, deputy head of the Moscow FAS branch Alexander Dorovsky explained. However, no information was made public over the biddings of the Post of Russia to rent the foresaid premises at a Russian official website for posting the information about the biddings (www.torgi.gov.ru). On the strength of this a case was opened against the enterprise over the violation of the law on protection of competition.
