Revenue target of the municipal budget’s general fund (excluding transfers from the State Budget) has been set at almost UAH 56 billion ($2.07 billion), which is more than UAH 2.3 billion ($85 million) more than had been planned for this year.
The income of the special fund is over UAH 4 billion ($147 million). The main expenditures of the municipal budget for 2022, as in previous years, are those on the social and cultural spheres. Their total share will be over 50% of the general fund," Klitschko explained.
The draft Program of Economic and Social Development for 2021-2023 envisages over UAH 13.1 billion ($484.4 million) for covering capital expenditures next year alone.
