One of the key areas of antitrust policy is to counter abuse the of dominant position. Among the most dangerous forms of abuse of dominant position - fixing and maintaining monopolistically high prices. In Art. 6 of the Law "On Protection of Competition" it is supposed to use two criteria for the assessment of the economic entity established as a monopoly high prices, including - comparable markets in a competitive environment. However, in practice the application of this provision, there is considerable difficulty in qualifying as the commodity markets comparable, which can not influence the risk of errors types I and II and, accordingly, the deterioration of the characteristics of the legal system to deter the activities, which results in a restriction of competition and losses in efficiency (loss benefit consumers). This article focuses on the economic assessment of the legal structure "comparable markets" in the Russian anti-monopoly legislation in the context of international experience of its application.
