As reported, despite the war, decisions on local budgets for 2024 are subject to mandatory publication. Given the martial law, communities and military administrations have some restrictions on publicizing a ready-made budget decision.
The need to publish a decision on the local budget is determined by part 5 of Article 28 of the Budget Code of Ukraine: the decision on the local budget is subject to mandatory publication no later than 10 days from the date of its adoption in newspapers determined by the local council. The publication of such a decision is also required by the Law of Ukraine “On Access to Public Information”, namely, according to Part 2 of Article 15, the decision on the local budget is subject to mandatory publication without delay, but no later than five working days from the date of approval of the document.
