The revenue of local budgets in Ukraine has doubled compared with the figures in 2014, according to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
"Yesterday I spoke with representatives of the Finance Ministry - our local budgets have been over-fulfilled by 43%. This is due to the resource that we gave to local authorities under the program on decentralization, including the budget one. And respectively there was also 40% surplus over 2015 compared with 2014. I can say that [revenues of] local budgets have doubled compared with the year 2014. And I'd like that all citizens can feel that local authorities have twice as much money, that they [local authorities] do not keep them on the accounts, deposits, but [use them] to build roads, [road and street] lighting, to grant fares (on favorable terms),” the President said at a briefing in Zhytomyr on August 2..
According to Poroshenko, local budgets can fully finance fares on favorable terms for servicemen who have ATO combat status.
