Information which was known to be unreliable has been placed on the website of the Map of Violations project developed by the Golos Association (https://www.kartanarusheniy.org/2018-03-18/m/40398); it covers alleged violations of the Russian legislation by Transneft in the form of coercing its employees into participating in Russia’s presidential elections. The information was made public in some media of Tomsk Region, on the websites of foreign agents (e.g. Radio Liberty) and foreign media.
Therefore, Transneft press service states that the Luginetskoye Neftegazokondensatnoye Mestorozhdeniye company (“Luginetskoye oil and gas condensate field”) mentioned in the said publications is engaged in oil and gas production and does not belong to the system of Transneft entities whose major business activity is hydrocarbon transportation.
Transneft press service reminds of the need to verify facts before their publication in accordance with the Russian Mass Media Act.
