None of Ukrainian political parties turned to the NAPC, the National Agency for Prevention of Corruption on the matter of refusal from state funding. Oleksandr Novikov, the head of the National Agency for Prevention of Corruption said so in his interview for RBC-Ukraine.
When the reporter asked if there were any statements from parties, including Servant of the People, which would ask to relieve them of the state funding, Novikov replied: "Not a single party turned to us".
He also noted that until April 21, the parties enjoyed the right to refuse from being funded from state budget until the end of their presence in the Parliament. However, the law that took effect on April 21 states that a political force may refuse from state funding for a quarter.
Previously, Servant of the People party claimed it would refuse from state funding of the party's activity in 2020, which is foreseen by the law.
The overall sum allocated for the state funding of political parties in 2020 makes roughly 7.5 million U.S. dollars.
