Pavel Livinskiy also made a point of the great investment potential of the company, while noting that the best financial results can objectively be achieved through regulatory changes.
Alexander Novak backed the Head of Rosseti and emphasized that the Government is preparing a set of appropriate measures. In particular, the Head of the Energy department named the draft resolution on payment for unused capacity reserve.
