"The State Duma has a corresponding bill. Moreover, after a visit to such an enterprise we will initiate it, we will try to persuade the President of Russia of the need for state regulation," he said after a visit to the Penza factory "MashStal".
According to Yuri Afonin, excess profit received by the energy complex should not be a fundamental vector for the development of the economy.
"The problem of many enterprises both agricultural and industrial ones is an increase in electricity tariffs. The state should start to regulate the tariffs because a profit rate in power companies is over several hundred percent," the interlocutor noted.
