The Minister of Finance of Ukraine Sergey Marchenko on Thursday, November 26, said that the revenue side of the country’s budget in 2020 will be exceeded by UAH 10 billion ($ 351.5 million).

“By the end of the year, [в госбюджет] will be exceeded by UAH 10 billion. Despite the pandemic, despite the crisis, the tax service has already fulfilled the annual income plan, “Marchenko said on the air of the 1 + 1 TV channel.

Earlier that day, Yaroslav Zheleznyak, First Deputy Chairman of the Committee on Finance, Tax and Customs Policy of the Verkhovna Rada, said that Ukraine had run out of money. According to him, a “huge hole” has formed in the country’s state budget – at least 40 billion hryvnias ($ 1.4 billion) are missing.

In September, the head of the political council of the Ukrainian party “Opposition Platform – For Life” Viktor Medvedchuk said that Ukraine “lives in debt” by two-thirds.

On November 5, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted in the first reading the draft state budget of the country for 2021, which implies a 6% GDP deficit.

It is assumed that the state budget deficit for 2021 will be $ 9.29 billion, or about 6% of GDP. At the same time, the state debt of Ukraine for the next year is envisaged at the level of 64.6% of GDP.
