Antitrust Discusses Euro-2

The Federal Anti-Monopoly Service does not see any grounds for  postponing the deadline for banning fuel meeting Euro-2 vehicle emission standards, said Anatoly Golomolzin, a deputy chief of the watchdog, as cited by Interfax.

Currently, the deadline is set for Jan. 1, 2013.

"At this point, there is no information regarding deadline extensions from any government agencies. The deadlines for technical regulations had been postponed earlier. For now, it is our understanding that there are no grounds for them to be extended again," Golomolzin said.

"You know that automobile emissions are one of the main [reasons] for negative consequences in major populated areas," he said.

The government has repeatedly postponed the introduction of new vehicle emission standards.
