“Why buy garbage?”
In response, the head of the territorial body of Rosstat for Ingushetia of Amadou he said, that such purchase is not contrary to the law. “I’m not doing something that is not required, – he stressed. – Those cars that are purchased, they are purchased with funds which are allocated to Rosstat. This is the target expenditure. No violations, I do not see.
The proposal to purchase cheaper domestic cars for such purposes Ingush official commented: “You could buy 10 cars “Oka”, but what are they for? You can at least a decent car to buy. Why buy the garbage that the weekly will be repaired?”
In October last year this same anti-corruption organization found that novgorodset for agricultural censuses buys a car-a sedan of a business class worth 1.7 million rubles with leather interior, automatic transmission and an engine capacity of from two to 3.5 liters.
