The Accounts Chamber has launched a probe into Gazprom’s activities, says its head Sergey Stepashin.
The checks will last till November and produce some ‘interesting results’, he added.
This is Gazprom’s first audit in five years and the Accounts Chamber has confirmed the natural gas giant has been open and cooperative.
The checks begin amid a chorus of voices blaming the state-run corporation for inefficiency and lack of transparency, including big football signings for Zenit, Gazprom’s pet project.
More audits are due soon, targeting Aeroflot, RusHydro and Rosatom.
