Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman believes that the national defense budget should be doubled.

Groysman said this during an hour of questions to the Government in the Verkhovna Rada, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Currently we have UAH 130 billion in budget for the Ukrainian army, our security and defense. However, I believe it would be better to double the defense budget of our country," Groysman said.

He noted the increase would be possible upon condition of economic growth. "The development of economy does not tolerate the growth of populism so we must eradicate this phenomenon and demonstrate a really effective state policy," the Head of Ukrainian Government said.
