Zelensky: 2023 budget will be the budget of a warring country /



President Volodymyr Zelensky announced this in his daily video message.

He held a meeting with the head of government, the minister of finance, and the relevant deputy head of the Office for the draft budget for the next year. It is clear that this will be the budget of a warring country. Officials will present the parameters of the project, the president said.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke about the important foundations on which the budget for the next year will be based:

  • More than a trillion hryvnia next year will be directed to the security and defense sector. This will be priority number one;
  • Social obligations must be provided in full;
  • In order to pass this time and ensure financial and social stability, it is necessary to reduce as much as possible all non-critical state expenditures, everything that does not help defense does not help the economic development of the country, the social and cultural security of our people;
  • Activation of economic relations;
  • A special recovery fund will be created, which will be filled, in particular, at the expense of confiscated Russian assets;
  • Loan programs will continue.

The government must submit a program to reduce spending on state enterprises, on the apparatus, on institutions that do not meet the needs of this special time. I expect proposals from officials," Volodymyr Zelenskyy summed up.
