The Government pays great attention to supporting the development of cultural projects in Ukraine. Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said during the working meeting "Culture amid Decentralization Processes".
"Culture is among the priorities of our Government. State and local funds are directed to support cinema, theaters, museums, galleries, and the purchase of Ukrainian books", said Volodymyr Groysman.
The Prime Minister reminded that through 2016-2018, 597 culture facilities to the tune of UAH 1 billion were built, reconstructed and repaired with government support in the regions.
"Culture should occupy a special priority place in the development of communities. There are two fundamental things - spirituality and culture. If we lose our identity, we will not be able to develop as a nation", Volodymyr Groysman stressed.
The Prime Minister stressed that the Government constantly supports cultural programs.
"We began to comprehensively support the film industry. In 2019, the Cabinet of Ministers allocated UAH 1 billion for the development of the movie industry. And we see the result. More and more qualitative Ukrainian films have appeared on the screens. I am convinced that Ukraine can become a regional leader in film production in 3-4 years", the Head of Government noted.
