Member of Ukrainian Parliament Valeriy Pysarenko appealed to the Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman to prevent the reduction of investment expenditures of the Kharkiv territorial community.
The reason for the deputy appeal is the Draft Law №8124 "On Amending Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine on Promoting Investment Activity in Ukraine", introduced by the Cabinet of Ministers.
According to the Politician, the government document provides for the cancellation of the share participation of the customer in the development of the infrastructure of the settlement. And this will lead to significant annual loss of local budgets. Only Kharkiv will not get enough about UAH 17 million, which is 17,5% of the budget revenues of the city.
"The Cabinet of Ministers did not provide proper financial and economic calculations and proposals on sources of coverage of losses of local budget revenues, which contradicts Part 3, Article 142 of the Constitution of Ukraine, according to which the expenditures of local self-government bodies that arose as a result of decisions of state authorities are compensated by the state," – stated in Mr. Pysarenko's appeal to Groysman.
The MP assures that the initiative proposed by the Cabinet of Ministers will not find support in the Parliament. Therefore, it asks the government to reconsider and submit a revised Draft Law after consulting local self-government bodies on balancing the budgets of local communities.
