The draft state budget for 2017 may be registered in the Verkhovna Rada until September 15, however, there is a strong likelihood that the government will immediately withdraw this document. This opinion in the program “Evening Prime” on the TV channel “112 Ukraine” was expressed by MP (PPB) Alex mushak.
“The government, repeats the same story that was with Yatsenyuk. Even if the budget will be introduced in Parliament, it is likely that he will be immediately withdrawn, as is now failed history with tax reform. I would like from Mr. Groisman and his new Finance Minister a more active approach. Because there is a repetition of the last two years, but the tax code and, most likely, the budget will be accepted with a very small gap. And the best fight against corruption we will be when the budget will be adopted according to the budget code,” – he said.
As reported, earlier Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said that the priorities of the budget in 2017 will be defense, roads, and decentralization. In addition, Groisman announced the increase of teachers ‘ salaries.
