The defence sector, he said, was Ukraine’s budget priority in the first nine months of this year, followed by social programs and healthcare.

Next year, Ukraine will direct “all possible resources” to support defense and security forces, Shmyhal said.

Ukraine’s draft budget for 2024 envisages that next year the country will allocate at least $46 billion, or 21.6 per cent of its GDP, for defence.
