Expenditures for environmental protection

In 1997, Ukraine had environmental expenditures of about US$ 950 million from public and private sources. In 2001, the Ministry of Finance introduced a new classification system for budget expenditures which was based on international practices and enabled more precise assessment. According to the Ministry of Finance, the comparison of figures from the two periods is therefore not possible. During the more recent period, there was a noticeable increase in expenditures related to the environment, which doubled from US$ 650 million in 2002 to US$ 1.1 billion in 2004. Nevertheless, the period is too short to confirm any solid trend.
