Meeting of Belarus’ State Control Committee, Russia's Accounts Chamber held in Minsk

Positive dynamics of the budget performance of the Union State can be seen. This was announced at the meeting of the Belarusian State Control Committee and Russia’s Accounts Chamber in Minsk. The index was reached thanks to the persistent position of the controlling agencies of Belarus and Russia.

Nevertheless, budgetary spending stays low in certain cases. About 75% of the funds were used for the realization of the “Innovative development of potato and artichoke production”. The terms of the program’s realization ended last year. All in all, nearly 250 million Russian rubles stayed untouched in 2016.

Alexander Kurlypo, deputy chairman of the State Control Committee of the Republic of Belarus:
There are problems which, unfortunately, remain unsolved for years. This is the problem of using the budget’s balance. In my report I said that if to look at the dynamics of the balance in the last five years, then the sum would increase by 280 million rubles in average annually.

Some 11 programs were financed in 2016 from the budget of the Union State. Nearly 3 million Russian rubles were allocated for this matter.
