“Samopomich” believes it would be wiser to spend the 10 billion hryvnias provided for the restoration of Donbas on infrastructure projects in the territories controlled by Ukraine.
This opinion was expressed by a deputy of the “Samopomich” Union faction, Viktoriia Voitsitska, commenting on the statement of the President that Ukraine has already accumulated more than 10 billion UAH which can be directed to restore the infrastructure of Donbas.
“If we have so easily found 10 billion hryvnias for the restoration of Donbas, why have we recently taken more than 5 billion hryvnias from local budgets and given them for the urgent needs of the army, because according to the Ministry of Finance we had nowhere to take the money from?” said the MP.
Voitsitska also says that the Verkhovna Rada is waiting for the draft budget 2016.
“Where is the draft budget for 2016 after all? And why cannot we at the expense of this money fund infrastructure projects and provide jobs for millions of our compatriots who have been forced to flee their homes because of the Russian occupation?” she says.
