The draft State Budget for 2019 proposed by the Government is real revenues, real expenditures and real extension of those social and sectoral support programs that have already been launched. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman announced on air of the ICTV channel in The Freedom of Speech program.
"This is a balanced budget, which encapsulates real incomes, expenditures, real wages and real projects. The programs we have initiated are systemic in nature. This means the support programs for the army and roads .... From March there will be a systemic increase in pensions", the Prime Minister noted. "Onerous tasks are not solved at once. We need to extend all the programs that we laid as the foundation for building the country."
