Nov 13 (Interfax) - Russia's plan to freeze tariffs on certain state-regulated services in 2014 is likely to have a low or moderate credit-negative impact on natural monopolies such as Gazprom, Russian Grids and Russian Railways, while end-users such as the metals, mining and chemicals industries as well as banks could stand to benefit, Moody's Investors Service said in a Special Comment report on the sector published on Wednesday.
