Oleksandr Kornienko, First Deputy Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, insists that the draft law on the 2022 State Budget of Ukraine (No. 6000) should be considered as early as this plenary week, which will last from November 30 to December 3.

The comment came during a meeting of the Conciliation Council on Monday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“We understand that one of the main functions of the legislature is the budget one ... We expect the next year’s draft budget to be filed by the government soon. I would like us to consider it this week because leaving such an important process for the last parliamentary week would be a risky endeavor. According to the calendar, we have no more issues to address in the session hall so there’ll be work in constituencies and within the committees, No we need to consider the project so that we don’t find ourselves in a situation on New Year's Eve where we need to return to the session hall," said the first vice speaker.

In addition, he asked chairmen of parliamentary committees to prepare for the swift elaboration of the relevant draft, so that its final version could be considered at the plenary session on Thursday, December 2.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, on November 2, 2021, the Verkhovna Rada passed at first reading the draft law on the 2020 State Budget of Ukraine (No. 6000).
