Hennadii Zubko: Local Budgets Have Increased by UAH 21.2 Billion as Compared to the Last Year's Indicators

UAH 65 billion (net of transfers) have been received by local budgets in the course of six months. In the last year, the indicator was UAH 43.8 billion. That is to say, in comparison with the same period in the previous year, the addition of revenues to local budgets totalled 48.5% or UAH 21.2 billion. It was so reported by Vice-Prime Minister - Minister of Regional Development, Construction and Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine Hennadii Zubko.

"These are not just figures that we see. This means the actual budgetary decentralisation in operation. And it is gaining pace, shows positive dynamics. These figures, notwithstanding what the populists and non-believers say, persistently and unquestioningly prove the efficiency of the incipient reform. The local communities have already obtained more funds to resolve their problems, they have significant incentives for development. The regions already have the opportunity to channell additional funds for the development of their own infrastructure, the construction and renovation of schools, hospitals, roads, etc.  That is the evidence of irreversibility of the incipient decentralisation reform", emphasised Hennadii Zubko.
