"For the last period due to increase in prices for oil our oil companies considered themselves offended. They came and say: you know, here we do not receive so much how many we expected to receive in domestic market. And someone promised it to them? And business even not only in it. Can they and do not receive that expected to receive. But what it is more important for us? That the oil companies surely earned how many they plan to earn, or after all that people could pay for gasoline, what and have some money absolutely? Therefore we were forced, we will tell directly, to pressure oil industry workers and to force them to sign these agreements. I consider that we did right thing. Let's look what will occur further" — Medvedev told. He added that if the situation gets out of hand, the government should make "absolutely unpopular decisions" for the oil companies, including introduction of protecting duties on export. The prime minister added that he hopes that will not reach before. At the end of October the government agreed with the vertically integrated oil companies and independent oil refineries about freezing of petrol prices and diesel fuel until the end of 2018. The agreement provides obligations of the companies for supply of fuel to the market at the level of last year plus 3%. At the same time wholesale prices for oil products are fixed at the level of June of the current year.
