Russia/Novorossiysk - unacceptably high tug charges brought to Moscow

In Weekly NEWS No. 2 of 12 January INTERTANKO reported on the drastic increase of tug charges at Novorossiysk. In June the tug companies again filed a request for yet another increase.

A dry cargo agent, UTEP Maritime Agency Ltd., Novorossiysk, reacted quickly and requested a meeting in June with the Ministry of Antimonopolistic Policy of Russia, the Krasnodar Regional Antimonopoly Committee and the Maritime Traffic Centre, St. Petersburg.

On 26 October 2001, UTEP will attend a conference devoted to tug tariffs in Novorossiysk at the Antimonopolistic Ministry in Moscow, at which UTEP will present UTEP's and INTERTANKO's claims in order to have the tariffs scrutinized and hopefully changed.

To further support UTEP, INTERTANKO has written a letter to the Antimonopoly Committee Krasnodar Region with copy to Minister A. L. Golomolzin, Ministry of Antimonopolistic Policy of Russia. The letter is to be forwarded/presented by the UTEP representative at the conference due to the short notice.
