As reported by the State Treasury service of Ukraine, the balance of the single Treasury account at the beginning of 2018 amounted to 5, 1 billion hryvnia. A possible reason for this “shallowing” of public Finance may be the decision of the government of Vladimir Groisman to pay “upgraded” the January pensions in December 2017. In addition, in Ukraine in the last month of the year traditionally try to spend unused budget funds.
In December 2017, the year the balance decreased by 10, 6 times, or 49 billion hryvnia, which was a record figure. In December 2016, the balance in the Treasury decreased by 13, 3 billion UAH. and in December 2015 to 38, 9 billion UAH.
