MOSCOW, January 16. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Culture Ministry on Thursday has made public the results of the inspections conducted at the Vaganova Ballet Academy in St. Petersburg after the administration of the ballet academy was changed last autumn.
"Neither methods used by the inspection nor violations which were found out were extraordinary," said Stats-secretary, Deputy Culture Minister Grigory Ivlev. A commission of the Culture Ministry found out violations connected with misuse of funds and a few mistakes in calculating taxes and salaries to the Academy's staff, Ivlev said.
The results of the inspections have been told to the Academy's staff, and then a plan for the elimination of the violations will be drawn, pending final resolution of the Russian Culture Ministry, he said.
The press service of the Culture Ministry quoted Acting Rector of the Vaganova Ballet Academy Nikolai Tsiskaridze as saying that "the inspection was predictable. The offences found have been registered, and they will be eliminated in accordance with the law".
"The teachers' staff has remained unchanged; in future, all cadre problems will be settled in the framework of the Academic Board of the Academy," Tsiskaridze said.
