MOSCOW, November 9 — The collegium of the Russian Audit Chamber
considered the results of the audit on using federal property and
funds allocated to the Border Service of the Federal Security Service
for keeping its units in Tajikistan and Armenia.

In particular, the audit showed that “questions of co-financing
border services by countries where they are located still exist,” the
information department of the Audit Chamber told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.

“In the first half of the year Tajikistan not sufficiently financed
Russian border guards by more than 263 million roubles, and Armenia –
by about 3.2 million roubles,” the information department emphasized.

Partakers of the meeting of the collegium also noted that as border
services are not registered as juridical persons in Russia, Tajikistan
and Armenia social and property problems arise, for instance,
concerning the working record of civilian personnel among Russian
citizens who moved for permanent residence in Russia.

The collegium of the Audit Chamber decided to send a representation
on these issues to the Finance Ministry and the Border Service of the
Federal Security Service, an information letter to the government
and reports on audit results to chambers of the Federal Assembly,
the information department of the Audit Chamber pointed out.
