Political parties in Ukraine will be funded exclusively from state budget from this year—Yatseniuk
To combat political corruption, the Ukrainian government will begin the financing of political parties, while funding from other sources will be limited, Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatseniuk has stated.
"It is unacceptable that the political parties or deputies are funded by businessmen or the so called oligarchs. We've decided that the financing of political parties exclusively from the national budget will start this year," Yatseniuk said on the air of the program "Ten minutes with the prime Minister."
The premier said that all the newly created agencies to combat corruption must firmly fight against any manifestations of political corruption—whether these are government members, deputies or other politicians.
