KIEV, March 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine's state border guard service asked the government to provide additional 113 million hryvnias ($11.59 million), the department's first deputy head Pavlo Shysholin said on Wednesday.
“We are aware of the extremely difficult economic situation in the county, but we have to ask the government for additional financing for border guards, which was removed from us last year when the budget was formed. We ask to earmark 113 million hryvnias for border guards when considering changes to the state budget. We have submitted all the proposals and calculations to the government after discussing it with the Finance Ministry," he said.
Shysholin has also asked prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk to earlier provide the funds that were earmarked for the second quarter. According to the official, the 43 million hryvnias ($4,41 million) are needed for current needs.
