Budget for the Regime. During all years of Yanukovych's presidency expenses on law enforcement rise

Yanukovych’s regime has directed budget money to strengthening the “law enforcers” and “courts” for many years. The first State Budget of 2011 that was adopted by President Yanukovych already contained significantly increased financing to the legal sector, particularly the courts and prosecutors.

Over four years of Yanukovych’s regime, “bonuses” to courts increased by 55%, the General Prosecutor’s office – by 40,9%, the Interior Ministry – by 32,6%. Meanwhile, financing of the other Ministries has also risen, but not nearly as much as these three ones. Traditionally, the government saved money on health care, education, and research.
