On October 24, Denis German, MP, member of the Verkhovna Rada Budget Committee, spoke about plans to build an airport in the Dnieper at the Informator press center.
According to the People’s Deputy of Ukraine of the IX convocation, a member of the parliamentary faction of the Public Servant of the People’s Party Denis German, before November 3rd, the second version of the budget law should go to the profile committee of the Verkhovna Rada. After consideration by the committee, on November 15, the draft should go to parliament for a second reading. Money for the airport in the amount of UAH 1 billion will remain in the budget for 2020 in any case.
“The very good news is that the deputy corps of the Dnipropetrovsk region made all the necessary efforts — and we were heard. Therefore, 1 billion UAH is provided for the construction of an airport in the Dnieper, ”said Denis German. — This amount cannot be changed. It has already been budgeted, so no one will take this money anywhere. There is a decision of the budget committee that agreed on this program. This program has been included in the budget note by the Ministry of Finance, approved by the Prime Minister. Therefore, we have 1 billion, and there are another 200 million UAH that were laid at the airport in Solyony. We retrained the meaning and name of this program. Accordingly, we have another 200 million UAH in 2019, which should be aimed at creating a project. Relatively speaking, 200 million UAH — for 2019, and 1 billion UAH — for 2020. I would like to thank all the colleagues who participated in this. Especially noteworthy is Sergey Severin, who put a lot of effort into the thresholds of Markarova (Oksana Sergeevna Markarova — Minister of Finance of Ukraine, approx. Author) and the Prime Minister in order to reach a decision at the airport. We provided support: signed letters, communicated and achieved what is important for the city and for the region. ”
According to the MP, the office for the Ministry of Infrastructure will deal with the project to create a new airport. “This office is responsible for tender procedures for projects,” said Denis German. — This is happening at the ministry level. A project creation process must be initiated, and this money must be spent. I think that by the end of the year or early next year, we should see the project. And in 2020, the construction and reconstruction itself laid down 1 billion UAH. These works will be carried out. ”
