As we reported earlier, according to Ukraine's National Agency for Prevention of Corruption, not a single Ukrainian political party asked to relieve it of the state funding.

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.
