On nights of the Murmansk Governor in 5-star hotels, the budget of the region spends millions of dollars per year, found blogger
Travel expenses of the Governor of the Murmansk region Marina Kovtun disguised in the budget of the region under the guise of tours, found in Murmansk media. In four years the cost of accommodation, the head of the region in five-star hotels of Moscow and St. Petersburg, and flights in business class cost of 14 million rubles.
The website Bloger51, which is owned by Aleksandr Serebryannikov, notes that in the regional budget reduced the planned spending on social objects, such as the construction of first-aid stations, aviation services for the inhabitants of remote settlements and at the same time, the government intends to give a subsidy to purchase housing for 15.4 million rubles. This means that the control-audit chamber has noticed that the Cabinet over the approved estimates for its contents.
“On the website of the state order of the Murmansk region there are dozens of auctions with an entirely herbivorous names such as “purchase of services associated with the direction of the employee on a business trip, as well as participation in festivals, concerts, performances and similar cultural events (including tour)”. These contests are always played at the end of December, a few days before the new year. It would seem that what lies behind these innocuous names? Some of the choir went to the competition or something. But in fact it is generously paid from the regional budget business trips Marina Kovtun. And paid all on the highest level”, – stated in the article.
Murmansk media published copies of acts of performed works, contracts and invoices for flights, accommodation and use of motor vehicles during travel of the Governor. So, the average bill for accommodation at the hotel – 30-60 thousand rubles for one night. All, allegedly, from 2012 on these purposes it has been spent 14 million 268 thousand rubles.
“For the lower ceiling, then the top – especially the floor”, – quotes the edition of one of the hits of the group “Krovostok”, offering the next time, when the regional government will offer the public to tighten the belts (to reduce subsidies for travel for pensioners, to cut the salaries of state employees, to “optimize” any medical institution), is to remember these numbers.

Sources in the aviation service confirmed that the Governor often late. Later, the regional government denied this information.
