    Today, July 3, the Verkhovna Rada MPs adopted amendments to the State Budget with 350 votes aimed to take urgent measures to overcome the consequences of the floods in the western regions of Ukraine.

    "The adopted law, in particular, provides for a UAH 2 billion increase in the State Budget Reserve Fund to finance measures to neutralize the negative effects of the June flooding and prevent other emergencies," said Deputy Finance Minister Denys Uliutin while presenting the bill in Parliament.

    The proposed changes will allow to provide immediate financing for the additional needs to ensure the restoration of flood-damaged facilities and provide assistance to the affected population.
