By estimation, only in 2 last years - only on Morskoy camp - the Center lost opportunity to receive over 20 million UAH of the additional real income", - note in a press - department service.
"From - for inadequate performance by Public administration by affairs of functions of governing body by MDTs "Artek" state enterprise property, its management didn't provide obligatory state registration of the material rights for real estate of the Center and implementation of requirements of the legislation concerning registration of its rights as land user. It resulted in uncertainty of borders of land use and created prerequisites for submission of numerous judicial claims and withdrawal of part of property of "Artek" in interests of other persons", - speak in Audit Chamber.
