Ukraine/ 5.1 General legislation  

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, with amendments 2003-2013), 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 dynamics of budget expenses for culture are almost steady for the last three years: UAH 2.359 million in 2013, 2.197 (approved) in 2014 and 2.173 (planned) in 2015. However, drastic changes in exchange rates and the rush drop in hryvnia are making culture expenditures lower by three times.
