Government Budget 100% open


What data is expected?

National government budget at a high level, that is the planned government expenditure for the upcoming year, and not the actual expenditure. Open budget data allows for well-informed publics: showing where money is spent on, how public funds develop over time, and why certain activities are funded. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

Overall, budgetary data in Ukraine could've been better.

Accept. Due to my limited knowledge of the cyrillique alphabet I could not search well on the portal, but I suspect that there all budget files are even easier available. Now I managed to find all files for 2017 on the ministry of finance website, all the files for budget + expenditure for 2016 are also updated and online on the same portal. Also, when the spending website is fully developed and online, this could be a very extensive resource for budget and spending data for Ukraine.
