The deficit of the Ukrainian budget this year set a new record

This year the State Budget deficit of Ukraine has set a new record: it is four times more than last year.

This is stated in a statement on the website of the State Treasury Service of Ukraine.

Thus, for nine months of 2020 the budget received almost 82 billion UAH. Last year in the same period the deficit was only 20.7 billion UAH.

Of course, the pandemic is one of the reasons for this situation. But it is not that the authorities now have professionals who could minimize the damage.
