Accordingto the press service of Front Zmіn, this was stated by head ofBatkivschyna parliamentary faction Arseniy Yatsenyuk. "On the roadfrom the parliament to the Administration of the President thereappeared significantly increased spendings on the power andsignificantly reduced ones for citizens. This is shown by ananalysis of the budget that is posted on the website of theVerkhovna Rada on December 4, and the text of the law, published onDecember 19, in the Government Courier. According to the transcriptof the meeting of parliament, the numbers voiced by the rapporteurof the Budget Committee already differed from those that thedeputies could see in the "Talmud" entitled "State BudgetDraft".
However, even these figures differ from thefinal ones. Thus, the spendings of the state budget in the draftconstitute 410.7 billion UAH, the ones voiced by the head of therelevant committee - 411.9 billion and after the signature of thePresident the figure rose to 412.1 billion UAH. On the way toBankova the revenues rose, too - from 361.5 to 362.8 billion, andthe maximum state budget deficit from 50.4 to 50.5 billion, that isby 100 million," said Yatsenyuk.
According to him, the lion's share of theincrease spending goes to the police - the Ministry of InternalAffairs received 1 billion hryvnia more than it was stated in thedraft. "This is not a gift to the Police Day, it is a sign thatthey are afraid of their own people and trying to barricade itselfwith police shields," added Yatsenyuk.
Also radically different in the final budget arethe figures for expenditures on the government bodies. Inparticular, the upkeep of the Verkhovna Rada was increased by 60million UAH. "Despite the fact that the government promised toreduce the spending on it to 274.5 million UAH, the Cabinetsecretly increase it to 334.5 million," added the leader ofBatkivschyna. "Besides that the spending on the Ministry of Justicegrew by 342.8 million UAH, State Tax Service - by 56.7 million UAH,State Affairs Department - by 15 million UAH, NSDC - by 19.4million. The State Judicial Administration of Ukraine, the SupremeAdministrative Court of Ukraine, and the Constitutional Court ofUkraine received additional 31.5 million UAH.
In this case, the power cut public spending: theMinistry of Social Policy will short-receive 20 million UAH,Institutions for the rehabilitation of patients with cerebral palsy- more than 7 million. Local budgets will miss another 160 millionhryvnia - subsidy for repair of water and wastewater systems wasdecreased by 160 million UAH.
