What happened? Ukraine spends UAH 130 billion ($4.4 billion) on its Armed Forces per month.
Source. Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal told about this in an interview with “LB.ua”.
Details. According to him, “if [earlier] we had about 156 billion hryvnias ($5.28 billion) for the maintenance of the army, and this was the annual budget of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, then today about 130 billion is a monthly budget. Of course, social benefits, demining costs, urgent recovery costs, and costs for internally displaced persons have greatly increased in our country.”
Shmyhal noted that the entire monthly budget of Ukraine is approximately equal to UAH 250 billion ($8.46 billion), of which up to UAH 100 billion ($3.39 billion) comes from taxes and customs. Thus the country's monthly need amounts to $4-5 billion.
