Ukrainian culture will not be financed residually as it is becoming an urgent and top-priority direction of the state policy. 

This was posted on the Government portal page on Facebook.

"The Government increases spending on culture by 90%. This means that Ukrainian culture will no longer be something minor, residually funded. The Government will allocate UAH 3.8 billion for conduct of cultural activities, preservation of historical monuments, and production of Ukrainian films," the statement reads.

As the Cabinet of Ministers pointed out, UAH 455 million out of these funds will be spent on preparations for hosting Eurovision Song Contest, UAH 500 million – on production of Ukrainian films, UAH 70 million – on the restoration and recovery of cultural heritage.
