Independent Member of Parliament Andrii Derkach has addressed the Prime Minister Vladimir Groysman with request to invite him to a joint meeting of the representatives of the Verkhovna Rada Budget Committee, committees on science and education, healthcare and the Ministry of Finance on the subject of immediate revision of the 2016 state budget in the view of critical deficit of budget funds allocated to education and healthcare.

As predicted by the members of the Verkhovna Rada Budget Committee, who never voted for the bill on the 2016 state budget, the deficit of budget funds for healthcare constituted 2,7 billion UAH, whereas education, considering the attempts to veto the previously adopted law on vocational schools, lacked 3,5 billion UAH in funds ”, MP underscored.

According to MP, in Sumy Region alone the deficit of budget funds for education and healthcare equals 183 million UAH. He also claims that the budget does not even include the expenses under protected articles. “ Vocational schools are facing especially blatant budget neglect considering that 61% of students obtain regular secondary education there, which is already guaranteed by the Constitution ”, A. Derkach pointed out.
