“As for this budget, we have several principled positions. First, the army and military budgets won’t be cut,” Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal announced at a meeting of the agenda-setting meeting in the Parliament, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
According to him, this concerns the issues of modernization of the military armaments, the construction of housing for the military, as well as the reform of the defence industry complex.
"The troops will be provided with all the necessary protection," Shmyhal assured.
As a reminder, the bill No. 3279 on amendments to the state budget envisages a decrease of UAH 122.9 billion in budget revenues for 2020, including the cuts in general fund worth UAH 121.77 billion.
The Verkhovna Rada plans to consider and approve the changes to the state budget on Monday, March 30.
