Financial assistance from the state of the Fund of struggle against coronavirus is not reached in Ukrainian cities, everything is bought by benefactors, said Tuesday the mayor of Cherkasy Anatoliy Bondarenko.
Earlier, the government of Ukraine has developed amendments to the state budget in 2020, which envisaged cuts in funding of a number of fields, and the creation of a Fund to combat coronavirus infection. However, the Parliament did not support the government’s proposed changes and sent the bill back for revision. In the amended version of the law, the Cabinet proposed to amend the state budget of 2020 which provide for the creation of a Fund to fight COVID-19 in the amount of 2.4 billion instead of the previously planned $ 3.4 billion. It was voted by the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada.
"Struggled with the coronavirus. They fought and fought. I’ll tell you the example of our city, so fought, so this help given that she just never came. She must also not reached to other city chapters, because those 98 million ($3.6 million) that we allocated from the city budget, and those 900 thousand (33,7 thousand dollars) that we were given from the regional budget, the regional centers are approximately the following figures are my colleagues from other cities. And where are the billions that the deputies distributed? I’m just wondering where they. Why not come down to us?" — said Bondarenko in the air of TV channel "112 Ukraine".
According to him, the government has not put in the city, no ventilator and no PCR system for testing. Bought all the benefactors.
"Sorry if I’m the head of the city alone was in the fight against coronavirus, I think I’ll have to make a decision when the quarantine to soften, when to relax, when to strengthen. Because those 120 million ($4.5 million) that our town sustained a loss as a result of criminal decisions of the Cabinet of Ministers about the quarantine, no one came out said that there will be consequences," he added.
The Ministry of health of Ukraine reported earlier that the number of identified cases of coronavirus in the country is 38 074, died 1 035 people, with 16 956 recovered.
