The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine at the plenary meeting on 18 October in the first reading will consider the draft state budget for the year 2019.
About it reports RBC-Ukraine with reference to the website of the Parliament.
Besides, people’s deputies plan to continue the review of the Code on bankruptcy proceedings, the bill on mine action banning the promotion of “Russian world”, the introduction of criminal liability for violations when crossing the state border. Also on the agenda is the draft railway transport act and changes to certain laws regarding the regulation of money transfer.
We will remind, on the eve of the government meeting Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman said that the Parliament is trying to “inflate” the budget-2019.
“I understand that for political reasons the project budget is being criticized. We propose to increase the cost of trillions of USD. But I’m not an expert to give empty promises. This is a budget that will ensure the development and growth of the economy,” he added.
It also became known that the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko will instruct the government to establish budgeted compensation to pensioners with low income.
