About 107,000 USD will be spent on the celebration of New Year in Kyiv. Igor Dobrutsky, the founder of the Folk Ukraine project and the organizer of the New Year and Christmas holidays on Sofiyska and Kontraktova Squares told UNN about this.
"As for the theme "Fairytale Forest", it has already been agreed. And we will just fulfill it. As for the price. From the city budget for the celebration on Kontraktova and Sofiyska square allocated about 7 thousand USD. As for the real budget for the main Christmas tree and celebration at two locations, it is about 95-107 thousand dollars, which is the money of sponsors, people who would like to see a beautiful Christmas tree in Kyiv, " Dobrutsky said.
The main Christmas tree of the country in Kyiv will be the most unusual; the Christmas tree will be artificial and installed on a large stump, with photo areas inside.
