Members of the Regional Council asked to Azarov to provide for payments from local budgets
Transcarpathian Regional Council appealed to the Prime Minister of Ukraine Mykola Azarov to provide for the State Treasury Service of Ukraine to immediately make timely and full payments from local budgets - informed the press service of the regional council.
"Since August 2012, despite the availability of financial resources on the accounts of budgets, the Treasury has been making payments for the unprotected articles untimely.
The problem worsened in October 2012 when the Treasury stopped paying even money orders for energy consumption, medicines and food. Since October 10, 2012 only social benefits have been funded. Completed repairs of schools, kindergartens and other social and cultural institutions, reconstruction and repair of roads remain unpaid for more than 30 days.
In addition, because of the refusal of funding by the Treasury we can not perform the obligations of joint investment projects in the social sector in the framework of agreements concluded by the Transcarpathian Regional Council with Czech Vysocina and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Hungary.
While foreign partners have fulfilled all contractual financial obligations, the Ukrainian part of the funds, which are managed by budgets of different levels, have not been paid by state treasury services.
Delaying the implementation of payment of local spending will increase budgetary arrears, failure to pay for works performed and services rendered, unpaid wages to the performers of these works and non-payment to the budget. Failure to fulfill financial obligations will inevitably undermine the trust of foreign partners and will lead to the collapse of joint projects, and thus adversely affect the international image of the Ukrainian state.
Given the above, please immediately solve the problem of the State Treasury Service of Ukraine making timely and full payments of local budgets," - quote from the text of the appeal.
