Russian Audit Chamber has questions to Chukotka governor

The Russian Audit Chamber will begin checking the activity of Chukotka (extreme Russian north-east, south of the Arctic Circle) governor Roman Abramovich in the coming days, said chairman of the Audit Chamber Sergei Stepashin in an interview with RBK TV channel on Friday.

On January 29, Mr. Stepashin took part in the session of the trusteeship council of the Charity Foundation for Rendering Assistance to Homeless Children and reported that the foundation, created under the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, collected in 2003 less than a $1 million which is a shame.

The money was handed over to children's homes and boarding schools. Stepashin cited data showing that in some children's institutions the state earmarks only 9 roubles a day for meals ($1 approximately equals 28 roubles).

This is why we should check how big business, including Abramovich, fulfils its social commitments.

"This is an ethical question," Stepashin said and expressed bewilderment how Abramovich could spend $300 million for the purchase of the Chelsey British football club.

"There are some ethical questions we would like to ask Roman Abramovich, and now will see how he fulfills his obligations a governor, Stepashin pointed out.
