Russian PM launches attack on monopolists
At a government meeting on strategy for socio-economic development in Russia for the next 12 years, Viktor Zubkov said the high price of utilities is one of the factors threatening the development of small business in Russia.
He also criticised excessive red tape, and the prevalence of corruption and bribery. But, according to Zubkov, the greatest challenge to small business comes from monopolists.
“Monopolists are the main disaster today, a terrible force,” Zubkov said.
