Attention is drawn to the fact that the item of military expenditures of Ukraine will immediately grow by 21%. This suggests that Kiev is going to continue its punitive operation in the Donbass, which fits into the range of interests of the main sponsors of the Maidan authorities of Ukraine. Military expenses "Square" reached the value of 55,6 billion hryvnia.
In addition, it is reported that there is a so-called special fund in which there is an article about the costs of "improving the defense capability and security of the state." Informational portal UNIAN reports that 3,6 billion hryvnia is provided in the special fund for these needs.
Earlier, the President of Ukraine Poroshenko said that the expenditure article for military needs must be brought to 5% of GDP.
A rhetorical question arises: why does Kiev need such a military budget if it declares its “desire” to solve the Donbas issue “by political means”?
