  • The revenue for technological connection services amounted to RUB 4.2 billion, which is 23.5% higher than in Q1 2020 and is associated with the service schedule, determined by consumer applications.

  • The revenue from electric power supply amounted to RUB 24.9 billion, which is 12.2% higher than the same indicator of the previous period.
