One of the requirements of the order of the antimonopoly department is the regular sale of petroleum products on the exchange,” the service said in a statement.

It is noted that LUKOIL also should not purchase oil products on the stock exchange during the main trading session. 

It is emphasized that the requirements are aimed at developing competition in the oil product markets.

Earlier it became known that LUKOIL was buying a subsidiary of Shell in Russia, which owns a network of filling stations and a lubricants plant.
