Government plans to elaborate farmer support program by August 1

The Government of Ukraine plans to elaborate the targeted farmer support program by August 1. 

The funds for the program’s implementation are expected to be received during the next review of changes in the state budget in September-October.

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said this, speaking during an hour of questions to the Government in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"It is important to unlock and take full advantage of our potential in agriculture, live stock breeding, crop raising and processing. I have recently created a working group on the agro-industrial complex, which involves representatives of all the farmer associations. We will meet next week. We will elaborate a targeted farmer support program. I would like this program to be formed before August 1," Groysman said.

According to him, this program will cover targeted support for different types of farms.

"It is important for us to give impetus to the restoration of farming in the countryside, small farms that should become the basis of our agrarian sector. Therefore, we present an approach that will be coordinated with the farmer associations," Groysman said.
