Poltorak wants not less than 112 billion on defense in the budget-2019


The Minister of Defence Stepan Poltorak hopes that for defense of the state in 2019 according to the law on national security it will be allocated to 112 billion UAH instead of 101.6 billion UAH

provided in the present draft budget "I hope that deputies will execute the law "About National Security of Ukraine". For the first time for all history of Ukraine it is defined what is allocated for safety and defense to 5%... and for the first time defined who treats security forces who - to defense forces. Only Armed Forces, Public service of transport, Public service of special communication and Head department of investigation treat forces of defense. And here I very much would like that People's Deputies executed the law... and on the sector of defense gave not 2.5%, and at least 3%. Unfortunately, today, on preliminary distribution, we have a budget for the next year of 101.6 billion UAH, and it has to be 112 billion UAH. It is a big difference, and I will ask People's Deputies and to demand that Armed Forces had a financial resource according to the law", - Poltorak emphasized.

according to him, these means do not cover all requirements of army as constantly there are new calls. But there are priorities which need to be provided. Among them - replacement of the equipment which term of use comes to an end, providing army with stocks, including ammunition, increase in a social package and a monetary allowance of the military personnel, creation of conditions and infrastructure for military units, etc.

As was noted by Poltorak, work on these directions goes systematic, but financial resources are not enough.

Earlier he asked for the Cabinet of Ministers 4.5 billion hryvnias for salaries the military.
