Despite the statements about over fulfillment of the budget, the authority in the first half of the year has not allocated 65% of the money for the health care, which should be taken from the general fund budget. This was stated by the MP from the OPPOSITION BLOC Serhiy Lovochkin with reference to the data of the Ministry of Finance and the State Treasury. According to him, the support of the economy, culture, education and the social sphere are also underfunded by 7-26%.
"The authorities say that the budget is overfulfilled, and at the same time, they don’t give the rest of money for the most important needs of the country. The Ministry of Finance and the State Treasury report that the state budget revenues in the first half of the year have increased by 48%. In addition, they report that from the general fund of the state budget, the health care received less than 65% of the funds. But we are talking about the industry that is in a critical situation," Serhiy Lovochkin said.
According to the politician, under the article "Support of the economic sectors", the failure to fulfill the plan for the allocation of money is 26.1%. Moreover, this is in conditions when the economy is in the worst situation over the past 12 years.
"The list can be continued: the social welfare lost 17.4% of funds, education – 7.5%, culture – 25.4%. The revenues came to the budget and the parliament allocated the money, but they did not reach the teachers, librarians and social workers," he added.
Serhiy Lovochkin called the social and economic policy of the present government not of an adequate situation in the country.
"The OPPOSITION BLOC considers this approach to the needs of the country and its citizens as a serious mistake, if not to say harder. Therefore, our goal is to make expenses on the economy and social sphere a priority. This is what should be done by any normal government, if it is a professional," the MP stated.
