"At present, the FAS Russia has not officially received applications from the Association of Air Transport Operators (AEVT) and the Ministry of Transport of Russia in terms of checking the rise in prices for aviation kerosene," RIA Novosti reported.

At the same time, it is noted that the department initiates a verification of the reliability of the information in the article of the Izvestia newspaper about price changes, and if confirmed, it will establish the reasons for such an increase.

Earlier, Andrei Gordeyev, an expert at the Center for Sectoral Economics of the Scientific Research Financial Institute, assessed the FAS proposal to cancel the ban on gasoline imports.
