The paper discusses the antimonopoly regulation of the Russian wholesale electricity and capacity market as an interconnection of economic theory and legal science. Research of results and by-effects of different regulation mechanisms and understanding the public danger of abusing monopoly power are problems of the economic theory and there are serious contradictions in these spheres nowadays. The legal science reflects these contradictions and transfers them into legal acts. The three legal acts that regulate pricing and bidding in the wholesale electricity and capacity market in Russia are analyzed. Findings show that the concepts of price manipulation and monopolistically high and low pricing are not clearly defined and allow violent interpretation.
