Due to effective tax policy, the state budget has exceeded the expectations of Natalie Yaresko, the Minister of Finance of Ukraine.

“As a result of 8 months, the profitable part of the general fund of the state budget has been exceeded by UAH 24,6 bln with regard to monthly scheduled figures. In general, we realize that we have resources to execute the budget as a whole.”

According to Natalie Yaresko, a positive trend observed during January-August, 2015, allows to increase the social standards even starting from September 1, 2015, not December 1, 2015, as it was scheduled.

Valeriya Gontareva, Governor of the National Bank of Ukraine, has noted that in order to maintain the financial stability it is necessary to understand how the funds will be spent.
