Auditors to check expenses of Sverdlovsk ex-official Glatskikh
The regional Ministry of Finance will examine the youth policy department’s books.
The expenses of the former head of the Sverdlovsk Region youth policy department, Olga Glatskikh, may be examined as part of the audit conducted by the Ministry of Finance. The auditors will examine the department’s books for 2017, but may, if necessary, request the documents for 2018, URA.ru reports.
The corresponding order was signed on October 18, 2018 – two weeks before the scandal, after which the Glatskikh retired. At a meeting with young volunteers, the ex-official said that the state owes them nothing and did not ask their parents to give birth to them.
After the resonance, the news about the expenditure examination of the department which Glatskikh headed appeared on the ICR’s website. The agency suspected the department of misuse of budget funds for educational activities for young people. Shortly after, the message was removed from the website.
