In September, auditors from the department of the Southern Office of the State Audit Service of Ukraine (SAS) in Nikolaev region intended to audit financial and economic activities of Chernomorsky Shipbuilding Yard within the framework of Corvette public program's implementation for the period from 1 January 2015 to 30 September 2017. Upon arrival at the company, the auditors were officially notified that there were no legal grounds for such audit because ChSY did not receive government funding under this program during the specified period.
A few days later the company received another letter from the department of the SAS’s Southern Office notifying it of the intention to make another audit of Corvette program, now for the period from 1 January 2011 to 30 September 2017. We have to state that this time the reasons for such an audit are also extremely doubtful from the legal viewpoint.
