5.1.3 Allocation of public funds
The main provisions for the allocation of public funds for culture including the central and local level are established by the Budget Code of the Ukraine (2002), especially Articles 86-93.
The Budget Law for each year is adopted in the previous year, and defines the current allocation of public funds for culture concerning the chief spending units. The 2013 Budget Law envisages the same level of cultural expenditures as in 2012, with an increase in some items and a decrease in others (see also chapter 6.1). New Presidential grants for young artists will be introduced, and there will be increased expenditures for cultures of national minorities, but costs for film production and expenses for the programme "Ukrainian books" will decrease.
