Activization of works hasn't affected the project budget. «Nothing has changed: the budget is still estimated at 195 billion roubles, about 90 billion roubles money of the federal budget, the others private investments»,

As appears from the report of the chief of Federal Service on Control in the Sphere of Nature Management department Vyacheslav Temnikov, 65 checks of 31 Olympic buildings were made in Southern federal district, in 2010. 59,3 million roubles were exacted from the organizations, making negative impact on environment in area of the Olympic building. 10,1 million roubles was the sum of the imposed administrative penalties, 6,6 million roubles were paid. There is a hope, that, gradually, the rate of penalties will decrease. Leading participants of the Olympic building have signed the Declaration on Restoration of Ecosystem of River Mzymta Basin, thereby having realized the recommendation of experts of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
