It is worth noting that only 1% of Ukraine's freight traffic is carried by river transport. This mode of transport is the world's cheapest and most environmentally friendly way to deliver goods.

The revenues of the state budget for 2021 are supposed to make USD 38.6 billion; that includes the revenues of the common fund (34 million dollars) and the revenues of the special fund (4.7 million).
