The State Audit Office believes that by using special flights even in cases when the state of emergency was not declared and when alternatives to regular commercial flights were available in a reasonable time, illegal behavior with state budget funds was allowed, which resulted in additional state budget expenses of at least 221,566 euros. On the other hand, according to the estimates of the State Audit Office, the allowed non-economic behavior caused additional expenses of at least 323,688 euros for the Council of the EU.
