The government earlier froze the growth of natural monopolies’ tariffs, including Russian Railways, for 2014 to hold down inflation, as well as ruled to hold the tariff growth in 2015-2016 in line with the inflation for a previous year.

Putin also ordered the government to consider allowing Russian Railways to raise tariffs for some kinds of cargo in 2014.
