The Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) has announced multiple overstatement of retail prices for medical masks in 68 regions of Russia. The department said that it has all the signs of "economic looting" in conditions of increased demand.

On its website, the FAS reported that it monitors the prices of medical masks in all regions of Russia. At the same time, the department said that the words of the deputy head of the FAS Andrei Tsyganov that the antimonopoly service does not see signs of cartel conspiracy in the overpricing of masks are not the official position of the department.

Earlier, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said that in Russia the demand for medical masks has grown, in some pharmacies the price has risen from 1,5 rubles to 70-100 rubles. President Vladimir Putin has demanded that licenses of pharmacies be overpriced.
