The staff of the Audit Chamber (AC) following the results of check of results of the priority program "Complex Development of Monotowns" on the example of the Kirov region in 2016-2017 has come to such conclusions, the press service of department has reported. "The existing list of monotowns includes 319 settlements. At the same time according to the Ministry of Economic Development, it is already possible to expel 107 cities which have lost signs of monospecialization in connection with reduction of number from it working at the city-forming enterprises and outflow of the population. Only in two years the number of able-bodied population in monotowns was reduced by 365,6 thousand people", - the auditor of JV Serey Agaptsov has said. According to department, on implementation of the program in 2017-2020 25,3 billion rubles have been provided. Last year expenses left 4,4 billion rubles that has made 39,1%. However at the low level of development of budgetary funds overfulfillment of some planned values was observed.

The volume of the involved investments has reached 1,5 trillion rubles that in 30 times more the planned sum. According to the auditor, the reliability of these indicators raises doubts.
